A new species of chondracanthid copepod, Parapercicola inflata n. sp., parasitic in the nasal cavity of the red bigeye, Priacanthus macracanthus Cuvier, 1829, caught off the southern coast of Taiwan, is described. This is the second species of a recently established genus, Parapercicola Ho, Liu & Lin, 2011. It is distinguishable from its only known congener, P. formosana Ho, Liu & Lin, 2011, in having in the female (1) a short trunk that is distinctly wider than long, (2) a greatly inflated antennule, (3) a labrum with knobs on the free posterior margin, (4) a less reduced endopod in legs 1 and 2; and in the male in having (5) a spinulose terminal process on the caudal ramus and (6) a maxilliped with a patch of denticles on the second segment.
