AbstractTwo species of Acanthomolgus are associated with the gorgonian Muricea californica near La Jolla, California. They are Acanthomotgus eminulus n. sp., characterized by a combination of several features: the two second antennal claws subequal and approximately as long as the fourth segment, the very unequal length of the two setae on the second segment of the female maxilliped, and the shape of the inner proximal expansion on the female fifth leg; and Acanthomolgus pollicaris n. sp., distinguished by the prominent inner thumb-like process on the female fifth leg. The copepods, which are consistent members of the epifaunal community on the gorgonian, are cryptically colored and may feed on the mucus present on the polyps.
