Cervinia mediocauda n. sp. and Tetragoniceps pacificus n. sp., are two new species of harpacticoids collected 15 kilometers off the central California coast, at 154 m depth. Both female and male of C. mediocauda are described, where as of T pacificus only the female was found. Differences in the mouthparts and in the length/width ratio of C. mediocauda make it unique within the genus. Sexual variation in the genus Cervinia is pronounced. A key to the species of Cervinia is included. T. pacificus is unique in the genus Tetragoniceps because of the setal formula of the pereiopods.
