Specimens of an unknown species of the monotypic family Kelleriidae Humes & Boxshall, 1996 were found in sediment samples taken during a number of sampling campaigns in two brackish systems in southern Sinaloa (northwestern Mexico). The species, herein described as Kelleria reducta sp. nov., shows some similarities with K. propinqua (T. Scott, 1894) from the Gulf of Guinea, but they can be separated by the armature formula of the female maxilliped and the relative length of the accompanying setae on the male maxillipedal claw. An amendment to Humes & Stock's (1973) key to the species of Kelleria is presented. Cierto número de especimenes de una especie desconocida de la familia monotípica Kelleriidae Humes & Boxshall, 1996 fueron encontrados en muestras de sedimentos tomadas durante el desarrollo de campañas de muestreo en dos sistemas salobres del sur de Sinaloa (noroeste de México). La especie, descrita aquí como Kelleria reducta sp. nov., mostró algunas semejanzas con K. propinqua (T. Scott, 1894) del Golfo de Guinea, pero pueden ser separadas en base a la formula de setas y espinas del maxilípedo de la hembra y en base también a la longitud relativa de las setas accesorias de la garra del maxilípedo del macho. Se presenta una enmienda a la clave para las especies de Kelleria propuesta por Humes & Stock (1973).
