ABSTRACT The genus Eriopisella is recorded for the first time from the Mediterranean Sea (Chafarinas Islands, southeastern Alboran Sea), and a new interstitial species, E. ruffoi, is described and illustrated. Numerical taxonomic methods are utilized to identify the Eriopisella line. Among the 10 known species of the Eriopisella line, the new species appears closest to E. chieregoi and E. madagascarensis. These 3 shallow-water, interstitial species share morphological features, such as coxa 1 anteriorly blunt, rami of uropod 1 without lateral spines, and thick-set rami of uropod 2 with rounded apical spines. Eriopisella ruffoi, new species, is considered as an intermediate species between E. chieregoi and E. madagascarensis. Morphological characters, ecology, and distribution of eriopisellids are compared and discussed with findings in the literature. The eriopisellid line is redefined, and a key to the identification of all known genera and species is provided.
