Abstract:

Both sexes of Sigecheres brittae gen. et sp. nov., a parasitic copepod found on the phyllodocid polychaete Sige fusigera in Danish waters, are described and figured. The systematic relations of the new genus are discussed and it is concluded that it is rather closely related to the family Clausiidae. Author
