AbstractA specimen of a monstrilloid copepod collected by the U.S. Fisheries Steamer “Albatross“ in the Sulu Sea, west coast of Mindanao, Philippines, and deposited in the U.S. National Museum of Natural History, was taxonomically restudied. The specimen had been originally identified as a male of Monstrilla serricornis Sars by C.B. Wilson. Reexamination revealed that the specimen represents a new species of the genus Cymbasoma, C. mcalicei. This species can be distinguished by its body proportions and body size, but mainly by the structure of the genital lappets, which have a serrated posterior margin unique in the genus. This is the seventh species of Cymbasoma reported from East or Southeast Asia.
