ABSTRACT A third species of Calliasmata, C. nohochi, is described from anchialine cave systems in Quintana Roo, Mexico. The new species closely resembles C. rimolii from the Dominican Republic, of which only female specimens are known. Calliasmata nohochi is characterized by a cephalon covered with minute scales and pits, longer pleura 5, and different spinulation on pereiopods 3-5 from that observed in the other two species of Calliasmata. Differences from C. pholidota are more conspicuous, and include the absence of ventral spines on pleura 3-5, the form and spinulation of the appendix masculina of the second pleopod of the male, and dimorphism in the segmentation of the upper flagellum of the antennular peduncle, and in the second pereiopods. Sexual dimorphism is observed among specimens of C. nohochi in the proportions, form, and spinulation of the antennular peduncle and flagellum, pereiopods 2-4, and pleopod 2.
