Abstract
Three new copepod species of Anthessius are described as associates of mollusks. Anthessius tuberculatus n. sp. associated with the bivalve Asaphis violascens (Forsskål in Niebuhr, 1775) in Kosrae, Micronesia bears a pair of dorsal tubercles on the fifth pedigerous somite. Anthessius rarus n. sp. is associated with the aplysiid gastropod Dolabella auricularia (Lightfoot, 1786) in Bohol, the Philippines and has elongate caudal rami which are about 5.2 times as long as wide. Anthessius cucullatus n. sp. associated with the aplysiid gastropod Aplysia kurodai Baba, 1937 in Korea has a hood-like dorsal expansion on genital double-somite of the female.
