AbstractCuipora janaina gen. n., sp. n., and Cyclopina caiala sp. n. are described from the interstitial water of a sandy beach in Salvador, Bahia (Brazil).
Cuipora is distinguished from all other genera of the subfamily Cyclopininae in having the endopodite of legs 1-4 2-segmented and the terminal segment armed with 4 setae.
Cuipora is compared to Erythropolites Huys & Boxshall, 1990, Herbstina Huys & Boxshall, 1990, and Cyclopina Claus, 1862, with which it has most morphological similarities.
Cyclopina caiala sp. n. is distinguished by the structure of the leg 5 of the male and female and by a particular combination of characters of the mouthparts. Taxonomical problems involving Cylopina mediterranea Steuer, 1940 are discussed.
