The pelagic processid, Processa pippinae Wicksten & Méndez, 1985, has been reported previously as an endemic species in the northern Gulf of California, Mexico. Additional material collected accidentally in a benthic sledge and with a mid-water micronecton net is reported, including a series of small-sized specimens (CL 2.2 mm). The shape of the laterally compressed rostrum of this species varies considerably with size and among adult specimens. Based on several morphological characteristics of P. pippinae, a new genus, Maryprocessa, is proposed. Several unique characteristics separate Maryprocessa new genus from the other five genera of Processidae, including the laterally compressed rostrum overreaching the cornea, unique among the Processidae, the extraordinary long antennal and antennular flagella, the posterior lobe on the dorsal margin of the third abdominal somite, and the long, acute pair of spines on the posterior margin of the sixth abdominal somite.
