ABSTRACT Echinophilusxiphidion, new species, ectoparasitic on sea urchins of the genus Strongylocentrotus, is described. This species is distinguished from E. semilunaris Schornikov, 1973, by a dagger-shaped clasping apparatus of the copulatory organ. Specimens were collected from sea urchins on the coasts of Oregon and Washington. Those urchins taken from areas exposed to intense wave action were free of this parasitic ostracod. The life history was determined by collecting juvenile instars from the urchins. Only seven juvenile instars are known for this species.
