A new caprellid amphipod, Caprella paramitis n. sp. is described and illustrated based on specimens from Algeciras Bay, southern Spain. The new species is very similar to C. mitis. Males of C. paramitis are distinguished from those of C. mitis mainly by the presence of the short merus of the second gnathopod, the palm of gnathopod 2 with a proximal spine with crenulated margin all around, and two well-developed ventral tubercles on pereonite 2.
