Abstract
A monstrilloid species belonging to the genus Monstrilla is reported from South Korea. Specimens were obtained from inshore waters on the coasts of East Sea, South Sea and Jeju Island. Monstrilla n. sp. is characteristic in having a huge body (about 6.2 mm long in female, about 4.3 mm long in male) and the polygonal ridge pattern (cuticular reticulation) on whole body surface. Monstrilla n. sp. is allied with three congeneric species showing the setal armature of 1:3 on endopodal/exopodal lobes of leg 5 in female: M. lata Desai & Bai, M. gibbosa Suá rez-Morales & Palomares-Garcia and M. careli Suá rez-Morales & Dias. This presentation deals with description of the new species, with brief taxonomic accounts and detailed illustrations of the morphological characters.dy (about 6.2 mm long in female, about 4.3 mm long in male) and the polygonal ridge pattern (cuticular reticulation) on whole body surface.
