ABSTRACT A new species very similar to Hirsutia bathyalis Sanders et al. (1985), the only other member of the Hirsutiidae, is described from 1,500 m off southeastern Australia. The single specimen has oostegite-like appendages with long, plumose marginal setae. Their posterior position is compared with a similar position in siphonoecetine amphipods. Pereiopod 1 has the usual number of articles. The terminal position of the anus on the telson is contrasted with the position in Mictocaris, the only other mictacean known. The structure of the limbs and mouthparts of Hirsutia suggests a selective deposit-feeding habit.
