[The rare monstrilloid copepod Monstrilla gibbosa Suárez-Morales & Palomares-García, 1995 was described from a single specimen collected in a coastal system of southern Baja California. Following its description, this species had not been recorded again. During a short-term study on the planktonic copepods of the Urías estuary in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Pacific coast of Mexico, a female specimen of M. gibbosa was collected. Monstrilla gibbosa is easily recognized by a combination of characters, including the presence of a peculiar keel-like ventral process on the anterior part of the cephalothorax, the structure of the fifth leg, details of the antennular armature, and the length of the ovigerous spines. However, the original description is incomplete according to the current, upgraded standards. This work provides a supplementary description of this species based on this second specimen. It includes additional illustrations of structures not previously described or depicted, such as the cuticular ornamentation, the complete armature of the antennule indicating all the elements, the structure of swimming legs 1-4, and intraspecific morphological variation. Although an interesting find, this new record of M. gibbosa represents a modest range extension in the Mexican Pacific., The rare monstrilloid copepod Monstrilla gibbosa Suárez-Morales & Palomares-García, 1995 was described from a single specimen collected in a coastal system of southern Baja California.
