A new species of halocyprid ostracod, Bathyconchoecia liui, from the bathypelagic zone of the Nansha Trough (North-West Borneo Trough, southern South China Sea) is described and illustrated. It is compared with the closely similar species B. angeli George, 1977. The present species is easily distinguished from B. angeli by the structures of the toothed edges of the mandibular basis and coxa, and by the segmentation of the fifth limb.
