Abstract:

Harpacticus pulex, n. sp., a harpacticoid copepod, is described from the sloughed skin tissue of a porpoise, Tursiops truncatus, and a manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris, both confined in the Seaquarium at Miami, Florida. Whether or not these copepods are associated with the mammals in the wild, unconfined state is unknown.
