ABSTRACT The genus Tumidotheres is erected to receive its type species Pinnotheres margarita Smith, 1869, from the East Pacific, and P. maculatus Say, 1818, from the West Atlantic. It differs from other pinnotherid genera principally in 3 features: (1) the gastric and cardiac regions are separated from the branchiohepatic area by depressions, all these regions tumid; (2) the palp of the third maxilliped is composed of 3 articles, with the carpus shorter than the spatulate propodus, the dactylus narrowly spatulate, inserted medially on the propodal inner margin and not overreaching the tip of this latter article; and (3) male and female abdomen composed of 7 free abdominal somites. An analysis of morphology of several postplanktonic stages of T. (formerly Pinnotheres) margarita suggested that this species should be considered as a senior synonym of P. pubescens (Holmes, 1894), which apparently was described from a hard-stage female. In addition, the life history, phylogenetic relationships, and larval morphology of Tumidotheresare discussed.
