A new species of parasitic copepod, Amplipedicola pectinatus gen. n. et sp. n. (Tisbidae, Cholidyinae) is described. The parasite was detected on the gills of octopuses in the Bering Sea at a depth of 129-500 m. Amplipedicola gen. n. differs from closely related genera by the absence of legs 2-4 and of the exopodite of the antenna, as well as by the unusually long, uniramous legs 1, extending away from the sides of the body.
