Four specimens of Stereomastis were caught by beam-trawl on 07 August 2011 at a depth of 1000 m in the western deep basin, around the submarine thermal vent site, along the North Anatolian Earthquake Fault, in the Sea of Marmara. These specimens appeared to belong to an as yet undescribed species. As a result, Stereomastis artuzi sp. nov. is described in this study as a new species in the family Polychelidae (Decapoda, Polychelida; also alternatively classified under Decapoda, Palinura, Eryonoidea).
