Abstract

A new species of the crustacean class Remipedia, Speleonectes epilimnius, is described from the surface water of an anchialine cave on San Salvador Island in the southeastern Bahamas. It is the first remipede species to be collected at the surface of cave water rather than beneath a density interface. Principle characters include relatively long trunk segments and absence of swimming appendages on the last two trunk segments. Comparisons are made to the other 11 remipede species; a key to the genus is included.

Las principales caracteristicas de esta especie son los segmentos del tronco, relativamente largos, y la ausencia de apendices nadadores en los dos ultimos segmentos del tronco. Se compara esta especie con las restantes 11 especies de Remipedia. Se incluye una clave del g enero.
