ABSTRACT A new genus, Clavellotis (Copepoda: Lernaeopodidae), is proposed to accommodate specimens originally described as Anchorella dilatata by Krøyer (1863), parasitic on Cheilodactylus sp. Clavellotis dilatata (Kroyer, 1863), the type and only species of the genus, is redescribed from a series of specimens recovered from an inshore fish, Cheilodactylus variegatus Valenciennes, taken near Antofagasta, Chile. The morphology of the female Clavellotis places it in the Clavella-branch of the family. The genus is characterized by aliform processes at the base on both sides of the cephalothorax. Other characters are the conspicuous genital process and the presence of secondary teeth on the dentiferous margin of the mandible. The most characteristic feature of Clavellotis is, however, the unique morphology of its male. The newly described Clavellopsis nodula Do and Ho, 1983, is identical with Clavellotis dilatata. Its relegation to synonymy with this species is recommended.
