A new species, Tortanus taiwanicus of the family Tortanidae (Copepoda, Calanoida), is described and illustrated from zooplankton collected in the coastal waters of Hualien, Taiwan. Tortanus (Atortus) taiwanicus may be distinguished from other species of the subgenus by the thoracic somites 4 and 5 being fused and protruding middorsally in the female, and by urosomal somite 2 of the male being furnished on the right side with postero-lateral and postero-ventral processes of unequal size, as well as by the shape of the male's fifth legs. This species may be endemic to Taiwan.
