This is the first study of Helioporacea Bock, 1938 for symbiotic copepods. A new species of copepod, Indoclausia helioporae sp. nov., was obtained by washing segments of blue coral, Heliopora coerulea (Pallas, 1766), collected from shallow water reefs in southern Taiwan. A full description of the new species is provided. The new species can be easily distinguished from its only congener, Indoclausia bacescui Sebastian & Pillai, 1974, by having (1) a small body of 1.32 × 0.20 mm; (2) a small caudal ramus, 33 × 15 μm; (3) a short antennule with formula: 4, 10, 11, 4, 2 + 1 aesthetasc and 7 + 1 aesthetasc (very short); (4) a 2-segmented maxilliped; (5) the exopod of leg 1 with formula: I-0; III-0; (6) the exopod of leg 2 with formula: I-0; I, III; (7) no seta on the endopod of legs 1 and 2; (8) a uniseriate egg-sac with 6 eggs.
