Abstract

A new urohaustoriid genus and species, Warragaia rintouli, is described from Jervis Bay, south-eastern Australia. Warragaia rintouli is the only urohaustoriid which never has spines or apical setae on the dactyl of peraeopod 5, has a vestigal inner ramus on uropods 1 and 2, and a posterodorsal hook on coxa 7.
