A new record of the leptostracan, Nebalia straus Risso, 1827 (Phyllocarida, Leptostraca) is reported from specimens collected at two sampling stations in Izmir Bay, Aegean Sea coast of Turkey between 2001 and 2002. The species is characterized by having a long antennular flagellum that bears up to 11-12 articles (in mature females), a long antennular scale 2.5 times as long as wide, a second maxilla with an exopod slightly longer than the first article of the endopod, and a stout distal spine on the fourth article of the antennule (two in ovigerous females). N. straus is recorded here for the first time from the eastern Mediterranean.
