A new species of the planktonic calanoid copepod Centropages is described from Shimizu Port, Middle Japan. The new species is assigned to the alcocki group that is distributed in the tropi cal/subtropical Indo-West Pacific regions. The sporadic occurrence of the new species alludes to the possibility that the new species was introduced to Japan via ballast water.
