[A new genus of Parastenocarididae, Monodicaris gen. n., is described from West Africa. It has many characters in common with the genus Kinnecaris Jakobi, 1972 but lacks the most distinctive feature of this genus, the grossly prehensile male antennule. Its own main distinctive features are the endopod of leg 2 male being short and stub-like, with a short terminal seta, and the spinules on the basis of leg 4 male above the insertion of the endopod being different in size, becoming smaller from internal to external. The new genus contains a new species from the Ivory Coast, Monodicaris larsi gen. n., sp. n. and 3 known species, viz. M. cataractae (Cottarelli, 1982) comb. n. from Sierra Leone, M. christiani (Dumont, 1981) comb. n. from Guinea, and M. monodi (Chappuis, 1959) comb. n. from Mali. Eine neue Gattung der Parastenocarididae, Monodicaris gen. n., wird aus Westafrika beschrieben. Sie stimmt in vielen Merkmalen mit der Gattung Kinnecaris Jakobi, 1972 überein, lässt aber deren kennzeichnendes Merkmal, die stark prähensile Antennula der Männchen, vermissen. Eigene kennzeichnende Merkmale sind der kleine stumpfartige Endopodit des zweiten Beinpaares der Männchen mit kurzer Terminalborste und die unterschiedliche Größe der Stacheln auf der Basis des vierten Beinpaares der Männchen oberhalb des Endopoditen, die von innen nach außen kleiner werden. Die neue Gattung umfasst eine neue Art von der Elfenbeinküste, Monodicaris larsi gen. n., sp. n. und 3 schon bekannte Arten: M. cataractae (Cottarelli, 1982) comb. n. aus Sierra Leone, M. christiani (Dumont, 1981) comb. n. aus Guinea und M. monodi (Chappuis, 1959) comb. n. aus Mali., A new genus of Parastenocarididae, Monodicaris gen. n., is described from West Africa.
