AbstractTuluweckelia cernua, a new genus and species of stygobiont amphipod is described from six anchialine caves near the northeastern coast of the state of Quintana Roo on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. The new genus is closely allied morphologically with Mayaweckelia Holsinger, which is also recorded from caves on the Yucatan Peninsula. Both taxa have probably evolved from marine ancestors since the late Tertiary.
