AbstractSTOCK, J. H. 1992. A new species of Hemicyclops (Crustacea, Copepoda, Poecilostomatoida, Clausidiidae) associated with hermit crabs in Curaçao. Stud. Nat. Hist. Caribbean Region 71, Amsterdam 1992: 69-78. Hemicyclops geminatus n. sp. is described from the upper infralittoral zone of Curaçao (Antilles). It is a regular associate of three species of hermit crabs: Calcinus tibicen, Paguristes grayi, and Dardanus venosus. The new taxon appears to be a twin species of Hemicyclops columnaris HUMES, 1984, an associate of a stony coral off the Pacific coast of Panamá.
