A new species of monstrilloid copepod belonging to the genus Cymbasoma Thompson (=Thaumaleus) is described from a female and a male collected in the Laguna de Chelem, a shallow coastal lagoon in the northeastern part of the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico. The new species, C. chelemense, is very closely related to C. longispinosum (Bourne) and to C. morii Sekiguchi, but can be distinguished from these species mainly by the structure of the fifth legs and genital complex of the female, and by the structure and details of the antennules and genital lappets of the male.
