A new species of poecilostomatoid copepod belonging to the Rhynchomolgidae, Wedanus formosanus, is described. It was found living in the polyps of a scleractinian coral, Goniopora minor Crossland, 1952, collected off Wanlitong in the southern part of Taiwan. The new species can be distinguished from its sole congener, Wedanus inconstans Humes, 1978, by the armature on the exopod of legs 1, 2, 3, and 4, and on the endopod of legs 3 and 4.

Elle a été trouvée dans les polypes des coraux Scléractiniaires, Goniopora minor Crossland, 1952, récoltés au large de Wanlitong dans la partie méridionale de Taiwan. La nouvelle espèce se distingue de son unique congénère, Wedanus inconstans Humes, 1978, par l'armature de l'exopodite des pattes natatoires 1, 2, 3, et 4, et celle de l'endopodite des pattes 3 and 4.
