Avitocaligus evoxymetoponicola nov. sp. (Copepoda, Siphonostomatoida, Caligidae) is described as the second representative of the genus based on specimens of both sexes recovered from the branchial and nasal cavities of Poey’s scabbardfish, Evoxymetopon poeyi Günther, 1887 (Trichiuridae), caught off Cape Muroto, on the Pacific coast of southern Japan. This new species is easily distinguishable from the type species, A. assurgericola Boxshall & Justine, 2005, parasitic on the razorback scabbardfish, Assurger anzac (Alexander, 1917), by the contour of the lateral and dorsoposterior plates of the genital complex and the ventral plates of the first abdominal somite, in addition to the possession of postantennal processes and marginal membranes on the frontal plates. The description of the male is given here for the first time for this genus. The maxilliped of the male is unique in having a rod-like myxal process.
