ABSTRACT The genus Ptilanthura is redefined. The type species, P. tenuis is redescribed, with the aid of more than 500 specimens. Ptilanthura tricarina Menzies and Frankenburg, 1966, is synonymized with the earlier P. tenuis Harger, 1878. Size-frequency distributions indicate the presence of primary and secondary males in this species. A second species of the genus, P. colpos, described from the eastern Gulf of Mexico, differs from P. tenuis in body proportions, shape of the pleotelson, and in several features of the appendages.
