Monocheres cagarrensis sp. nov., a second species of the genus Monocheres, has been discovered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, associated with sponges. It shows the reduction of the fifth leg to a seta, which characterizes the genus. M. cagarrensis differs from its congener by the length of the siphon which reaches the insertion of P2, and by the presence of a group of denticles on the postero-lateral comers of the genital double-somite, a denticle on the postero-lateral comers of the postgenital somite, and 2 setae on the second endopodal segment of the antenna.
