A new species, Heteromysis komaii, is described from specimens obtained from the gastral cavity of sponges, Callyspongia confoederata, from the Uraga Channel, located at the entrance of Tokyo Bay, central Japan. Heteromysis komaii is distinguished from all known species of the genus by several features: the distal segment of the antennular peduncle has a flagellate spine at the inner distal angle, the antennal scale is longer than the antennal peduncle, the endopod of the third thoracopod has two flagellate spines at the inner distal angle of the carpus, the fourth to eighth thoracopodal endopods have the carpopropodus divided into two or three subsegments, the male pleopod is unmodified, the uropodal endopod is without spines, the telson has spines on the distal half of the lateral margin, and the apical cleft of the telson is with spinules throughout. The distribution and habitats of the species of Heteromysis are reviewed.
