Two specimens of the caridean family Oplophoridae are reported from dredging activity on the recently discovered hydrothermal vent fields of the Arctic Ocean's ultra-slow-spreading Gakkel Ridge. This is the first report of any decapod crustacean from Arctic Ocean vents and the first record of this species (Hymenodora glacialis (Buchholz, 1874)) from the vicinity of marine hydrothermal vents.

Deux spécimens de la famille des Oplophoridae (Decapoda, Caridea) ont été observés, provenant de dragages réalisés sur les sites hydrothermaux récemment découverts dans l'océan Arctique à la hauteur de la ride Gakkel. C'est la première trouvaille de crustacés décapodes dans ce type de milieu de l'océan Arctique et la première observation de l'espèce Hymenodora glacialis (Buchholz, 1874) au voisinage de sources hydrothermales marines.
