Two new genera, Cresseyus and Hamaticolax, are proposed to accommodate the 16 'orphan species' of bomolochid copepods hitherto placed in Holobomolochus Vervoort, 1969 but bereft of recent copepod literature. The new genera differ from Holobomolochus chiefly in the basal part of the antennule where the anterior margins of the first two segments are not at right angles to each other. Hamaticolax differs further from both Holobomolochus and Cresseyus in bearing a pair of rostral hooks. A new species, Cresseyus nudulus, is described from specimens found parasitic in the nasal and gill cavities of the Jarbua terapon, Terapon jarbua (Forsskål), caught in the Strait of Taiwan. The new species differs from its five congeners in the structure of the claw of the maxilliped and the armature of the endopod of leg 4. Deux nouveaux genres, Cresseyus et Hamaticolax, sont proposés pour accomoder les 16 espèces 'orphelines' de copépodes Bomolochidae jusqu'ici placées dans le genre Holobomolochus Vervoort, 1969 mais absentes de la littérature récente sur les copépodes. Les nouveaux genres diffèrent de Holobomolochus principalement par la partie basale de l'antennule dont les bords antérieurs des deux premiers segments ne sont pas à angle droit l'un par rapport à l'autre. Hamaticolax diffère davantage, à la fois de Holobomolochus et de Cresseyus, par la présence d'une paire de crochets rostraux. Une nouvelle espèce, Cresseyus nudulus est décrite à partir de spécimens trouvés parasitant les cavités nasales et branchiales de Terapon jarbua (Forsskål), pêché dans le détroit de Taiwan. La nouvelle espèce diffère de ses cinq congénères par la structure du crochet du maxillipède et l'armature de l'endopodite de la quatrième paire de pattes.
