A new species, Tortanus tumidus of the family Tortanidae (Copepoda, Calanoida) identified from zooplankton collected in the lagoon of Zhubi Reef in the Nansha (Spratly) Archipelago of the South China Sea is described and illustrated. Tortanus (Atortus) tumidus can be distinguished from other species of the subgenus by its posterior cephalic region, a small middorsal protrusion in both females and males, and by the shape of the male's right fifth leg. This species may be endemic to the Nansha Archipelago. Une nouvelle espèce de la famille des Tortanidae, Tortanus tumidus (Copepoda, Calanoida), identifiée à partir de zooplancton récolté dans le lagon de Zhubi Reef, dans l'archipel Nansha (Spratly) de la mer de Chine méridionale, est décrite et illustrée. Tortanus (Atortus) tumidus se distingue des autres espèces du sous-genre par sa région céphalique postérieure, par une petite protubérance médiodorsale chez les mâles et les femelles, et par la forme de la cinquième patte droite du mâle. Cette espèce pourrait être endémique de l'archipel Nansha.
