ABSTRACT Cyclopoid copepods belonging to a new genus and species, Fimbricyclops jimhensoni, were collected from bromeliads in Puerto Rico. The genus is distinguished from other members of the family Cyclopidae, subfamily Cyclopinae, by the combined characters of the antennule of the female having 11 articles, the antenna lacking an exopodite seta, the mandible with the palp represented only by 1 seta, the maxilliped having 4 articles and a reduced number of setae on articles 1, 2, and 4, the biarticulate rami of legs 1-4, the leg 5 with the proximal article fused to the somite and the distal article broader than long, and the peculiar somitic ornament consisting of rows of spines on the lateral surfaces of the posterior prosomites and the posterior hyaline membranes of the anterior 2 (in the female) and 3 (in the male) urosomites modified as a spinous fringe. Leg 6 of the male bears 3 plumed appendages of which the medialmost is spiniform and most thickly set with stiff spinules.
