Subeucalanus flemingeri sp. n. from the Arabian Gulf (Copepoda: Eucalanidae)

I.Yu. Prusova, F. Al-Yamani, H. Al-Mutairi

Abstract. Subeucalanus flemingeri sp. n. is described from females and males collected from Kuwait’s waters in the northwestern Arabian Gulf. The new species is similar to S. pileatus (Giesbrecht, 1888) and S. subcrassus (Giesbrecht, 1888), but is clearly distinguished by the shape of the forehead and seminal receptacles pattern in female, and by the cask-shaped second urosomal segment and details of P5 in male.
