Abstract
    The validity of Pseudocuma gilsoni Bacescu 1950 has been questioned in the past. The recent discovery of material in Irish waters, and in the North Sea, confirms the presence of the species in the North East Atlantic and provides the opportunity to present a full redescription. A new genus,Monopseudocuma, is erected to accommodate the species. A neotype is designated from the West coast of Ireland.
