Monopylephorus helobius n. sp. is described from material collected from a Louisiana salt marsh, the northern coast of Florida, a fresh-water swamp, and a saline river in Texas. The species is distinctive in having setae with short distal teeth. The male duct, although covered
with bands of muscle, is similar to that of M. rubroniveus Levinsen.
