The recent collection of two females and one male of Pseudorhombila xanthiformis Garth, 1940, in the Gulf of California, permits to complete the definition of this species previously known from female specimens only. P. xanthiformis was transferred to the genus Nanoplax Guinot, 1969, as N. garthi Guinot, 1969, nom. nov. A close examination of the sternum-abdomen organization and of the sexual pleopods of the male, and the comparison of this fresh material of P. xanthiformis, with P. quadridentata (Latreille, 1828), P. octodentata Rathbun, 1906, and P. guinotae Hernandez-Aguilera, 1982 on the one hand, and on the other hand with Nanoplax xanthiformis (A. Milne Edwards, 1880), the type-species of Nanoplax, lead us to the conclusion that Garth's species should be maintained in the genus Pseudorhombila A. Milne Edwards.
