Two new species of Leptostraca (Crustacea, Malacostraca) belonging to the genus Sarsinebalia are described from shallow waters off Galicia (northwest Spain). The new species differ from S. typhlops, the only known member of the genus, mainly in having ommatidia externally visible and pigmented eyes, as well as a second maxilla bearing an exopod that is longer than the first article of the endopod. The validity of Sarsinebalia is discussed in the light of the new species described.
