Abstract

Two specimens of Campylonotus arntzianus
sp. nov. were caught in the Antarctic Scotia Sea off
Saunders Island (5740.31’S, 2627.81’W) using an Agassiz
trawl at one station (depth: 475–589 m). The new
species described here is the fifth representative of the
monogeneric family Campylonotidae, and the first of the
family south of the Antarctic Convergence. Campylonotus
arntzianus sp. nov. is a shrimp of about 5 cm in total
length. Due to similarities in adult morphology,
C. arntzianus sp. nov. seems to be closely related to
C. capensis, a deep-sea species from the Southern
Atlantic Ocean. A simple key for the species identification
of the Campylonotidae is provided.
