Abstract We describe two new species in the new calanoid genus Camerundiaptomus. The new genus is currently known only from the rainforests of Cameroon, where its abundance is extremely low. The only other calanoid found was a known species of Tropodiaptomus. It was rare as well. Fish predation is cited as one among possible reasons for the rarity of calanoids in the Cameroon forest zone specifically, and for the generically impoverished calanoid fauna of tropical lowland Africa in general.
