Careful examination of the enveloping membranous folds (expansions of the basal disc) of the actinian Adamsia palliata (Bohadsch), associated with the pagurid Pagurus prideauxi Leach, has revealed the presence of an inquilinous harpacticid copepod, Laophonte adamsiae n. sp. The systematic position of this harpacticid within the genus Laophonte is discussed. L. adamsiae belongs to the setosa-group of that genus; the main characters separating it from the related species of the group are: the flattened body, the three-segmented exopod of the first leg, and the structure of the fifth leg.
