ABSTRACT The family Biancolinidae (Amphipoda: Gammaridea: Corophioidea) is taxonomically reviewed, described, and a key to all species provided. Biancolina australis deserves new generic recognition, but is provisionally retained in Biancolina because the type specimen has been lost. Biancolina mauihina is recognized as a distinct species, and its synonymy is clarified by exclusion of species erroneously assigned to B. mauihina. Biancolina obtusata sachalinensis is elevated to full species rank, and B. japonica, new species, is described using material collected from drifting seaweeds in the Japan Sea. The outer ramus of uropod I exhibits remarkable sexual dimorphism in Biancolina. The outer ramus of the male is distally extended and rolled up, like a water spout, with an acute apex. Transformation of the ramus may be associated with reproductive behavior in the male.
