Echthrogaleus mitsukurinae sp. nov. (Copepoda, Siphonostomatoida, Pandaridae) is described based on a female recovered from the body surface of the goblin shark, Mitsukurina owstoni Jordan, 1898, captured on the slope of the Tokyo Canyon at about 400 m depth in Tokyo Bay, Japan. This new species is easily distinguishable from all its congeners in having the following unique features in the female: (1) the lateral lobes of the cephalothorax and the lateral plates of pediger 2 are devoid of marginal membranes, (2) the dorsal plates of pediger 4 have a smooth margin, (3) the posterolateral lobes of the genital complex are widely curved medially and overlap each other across the midline, (4) legs 2 and 3 have 3-segmented endopods, and (5) leg 4 has an incompletely 2-segmented exopod.
