Nine species of the bathypelagic calanoid copepod genus Chiridiella were obtained from zooplankton samples collected monthly between July 1968 and September 1970 over four depth levels between the surface and 2,000 m at Station “S,” 32° 10′ N, 64° 30′ W, in the Sargasso Sea off Bermuda. All were caught between 500-m and 2,000-m depths. Six new species are described, and descriptions are also given of three species: C. pacifica Brodsky, C. chainae Grice, and C. macrodactyla Sars. The male of C. pacifica, the third male individual of Chiridiella ever to be reported, is also described. A key to the females of the genus, which now contains 16 species, is included.
