|Abstract||In the flat littoral of the coast of Puerto Rico (West Indies) at the reef of Cayo Enrique a few Cyclopoida Gnathostoma were collected in colonies of the corallimorpharian Ricordea florida Duch & Mich., which belong to the subfamilies Pterinopsyllinae and Euryteinae. These are the following species: Pterinopsyllus insularis n. sp., Euryte grata n. sp. and Ancheuryte notabilis n. g., n. sp.|
Pterinopsyllus insularis differs from the till now known species of the genus by the number of segments of the first antenna, as well as in the form and armature of P 5. A differential diagnosis and a key for the genus is added. Because of striking differences in the structure of antenna 1 and P 5, a new genus Pterinopsyllotus is established for Pterinopsyllus giesbrechti Wilson, 1973.
Euryte grata belongs to a group of the genus, which shows a furca that is about four times as long as wide. It differs from comparable species in particular by the proportions of the terminal segment of Enp. 4 and moreover in the structure of the maxilliped. An identification key is provided.
Ancheuryte notabilis differs clearly by the shape of the genital segment and the 2-segmented P 5 from the known Euryte species. Therefore it appears advisable to place this species in a separate genus. The diagnosis of the subfamily Euryteinae is completed.
The three new species are characterized and figured in detail.
