[A new oedicerotid amphipod, Monoculodes curtipediculus is described from benthic collections taken from sites offshore of the U.S. Antarctic base at McMurdo Station in the Ross Sea. The morphology of the antennae, rostrum, gnathopods, peraeopods 3 and 4, and the uropods are the major characteristics which serve to distinguish the new species from its congeners in the southern hemisphere. The new species is fully illustrated, extensively compared with related species, and a key is given to the five Monoculodes species with shortened carpal lobes on gnathopod 2, recorded from southern hemisphere waters.

La nouvelle espèce est abondamment illustrée et ses relations avec les espèces proches sont discutées en détail.
