ABSTRACT The cyclopoid copepod Metacyclops cushae, new species, was collected from temporarily water-filled depressions in greater New Orleans, Louisiana. The species possesses a combination of characters unique in the genus: the antennule of 11 articles, legs 1-4 spine formula 3,4,3,3, leg 4 endopodite article 2 with only 1 terminal spine, legs 1-4 couplers lacking ornament, and medialmost terminal caudal seta shorter than lateralmost terminal caudal seta. This is the first confirmed published report of the genus Metacyclops from the North American continent.
