ABSTRACT Abundant material referred to Schizotrema atlanticum was recently collected with a suprabenthic sled on the outer continental shelf of the southeastern Bay of Biscay, allowing a detailed redescription of this poorly known cumacean from well-preserved specimens. After a morphological analysis, it is proposed to transfer Schizotrema atlanticum to the genus Nannastacus. Similarities of Nannastacus atlanticus, new combination, with the most closely related species are discussed. In the southeastern part of the Bay of Biscay the depth range observed of N. atlanticus extends from 90-390 m, living on superficial sediments in muddy sand in temperatures between 11.2 and 11.7°C. Abundance in the study area was low at its shallow and deep bathymetric limits, whereas higher values were recorded all along the western limit of the continental shelf (maximum abundance: 54 ind./100 m2 in July at about 170 m). The benthic habitat of this cumacean is mainly on the outer shelf/upper slope and probably linked with the higher energy level of such a neritic environment.
