ABSTRACT A new species of copepod parasite of the recently erected genus Ischnochitonika Franz and Bullock, 1990, from the tropical western Atlantic, is described from the chiton Ischnochiton (Ischnoradsia) hakodadensis (Pilsbry, 1893) from the Sea of Japan, at Oshoro, on the west coast of Hokkaido, Japan. This is the second record of copepods parasitizing polyplacophorans. The female resides in the pallial groove of the host attached to its inner wall and shows neither appendages nor segmentation. The species shares the general habitus of the genus, but differs from the other described species in the shape of the ectosoma and details in the structure of the pygmy male.
