Cymodoce spinula sp. nov. (Isopoda, Sphaeromatidae) from the rocky intertidal zone of Karachi, Pakistan is described. It can be distinguished from its congeners by the male having the dorsal surface of the telson with a pair of anterior submedian longitudinal ridges, a large smooth domed boss with a row of tubercles on either side, the pleotelson apex with an acute median tooth, and a spinose pereopod 7. The affinity of Cymodoce spinula to related species is discussed.
