ABSTRACT King crabs of the genus Paralithodes are hosts to a new genus and species of commensal pleustid amphipod off southern California. The dactyls of the walking legs of the amphipod bear a novel structure, a sucker, for adhesion to the host. The new genus is plesiomorphic in many aspects, but apomorphically modified as a commensal. Most (possibly all) specimens are found on crabs parasitized by the rhizocephalan Briarosaccus callosus, and the symbiosis seems to involve all three organisms. The new species is the first member of the subfamily Atylopsinae described from the Pacific Ocean. The family Pleustidae and subfamily Atylopsinae are rediagnosed to accommodate the new taxon.
