Abstract A new highly transformed parasitic copepod, Arthurhumesia canadiensis new genus, new species, is described based on specimens parasitizing the zooids of a compound ascidian, Aplidium solidum (Ritter and Forsyth, 1917), collected near Bamfield Marine Station, British Columbia, Canada. The new genus is distinguishable from its closest allied genera, Gonophysema Bresciani and Lützen, 1960, Capistrum Monniot, 1985, and Tarificola López-González, Bresciani, and Conradi, 1998, in the shape of the dwarf male and its relationship to the female's body. The possible convergence in body shape in these four genera is also discussed.
