We erect Hangangbathynella n. gen. to accomodate two new parabathynellid species, H. taechooni and H. eunokae, collected from subterranean water in South Korea. The new genus is characterized by: the 7-segmented antennules and antennae, absence of a medial seta on the second maxillary segment, a 2-segmented exopod of thoracopods I-VII, oval form of the male thoracopod VIII with penial organ displaying a smooth surface and gourd-shaped epipod, absence of pleopods, uropodal protopod with homonomous spines, pleotelson with one lateral seta near the base of the furcal rami and protruding anal operculum with sharp triangular process. The two new species differ in body size, in the number of spines of the uropodal protopod, in setae on the third maxillary segment, in the number of the spines on the mandibular spine row, as well as in the form of female thoracopod VIII.
