ABSTRACT Orchomenelimodes, new species (Amphipoda: Lysianassidae), recently discovered in Scripps Canyon, California, is described and compared to other species within this genus. Intraspecific analysis of morphological variation was performed in order to determine which characters would be appropriate for the description. Thirty-five potentially diagnostic characters were grouped into three types: qualitative, meristic, and morphometric, and analyzed for variation between individuals. The characters found invariant or slightly variable in this study were then used in the diagnosis of the species description. A discussion is presented on this study's relevance to present and future taxonomic work on this genus.
