Chlopsis kazuko, a new species of false moray eel (Anguilliformes: Chlopsidae) from the eastern Pacific, is described and illustrated from two metamorphosed individuals and two leptocephali. The adults were collected in the Gulf of California in 1940 by dredge from a depth of 53 m and from under a night light while at anchor. C. kazuko is distinguished from all other Chlopsis by a combination of characters: total vertebrae, color and pigment patterns, and origin of dorsal fin.
