Monstrilla Reidae, a New Species of Monstrilloid Copepod from the Caribbean Sea off Mexico
Abstract:A new monstrilloid species, Monstrilla reidae, collected during surface plankton tows in a Mexican Caribbean bay is described from male specimens. The species has six furcal setae, which separates it from most Monstrilla species. However, it is best distinguished as a new species by the structure of the genital apparatus, which is unique throughout the group, only showing some affinity to M. anglica. This is the second record of the genus in the Caribbean Sea off Mexico.
