Abstract


Parvipalpus onubensis n. sp. is described based on the specimens collected from sediments on the coast of Huelva (Southwest Spain). The new species is compared with the other species in the genus: Parvipalpus capillaceus (Chevreux, 1887), P. linea Mayer, 1890 and P. major Carausu, 1941. Parvipalpus onubensis differs from the remaining species of Parvipalpus by the simultaneous combination of the following characters: small size (body length up to 2.8 mm), rostrum present, body completely smooth, flagellum of antenna 1 with 5 articles in males and 3 in females, mandibular palp 2-articulate, incisor and lacinia mobilis 4-toothed and penes well developed.
