Abstract Rich samples of benthic Peracarida collected from abyssal plains of the Angola Basin (South Atlantic) contained several new and rare asellote isopods. In this contribution, Eurycope tumidicarpus n. sp. is described from well-preserved specimens. This species is remarkable because the second pereopod has an enlarged carpus, and pereopod 4 is shaped like the posterior swimming legs. New specimens of Acanthocope galathea Wolff, 1962 (Fig. 1a) are used for a redescription, hitherto unknown… Expand
