Abstract
A new species of Tortanus (Copepoda: Calanoida) collected from Kuchinoerabu Island, Kyushu, Japan, by SCUBA diving is described. This species belongs to the subgenus Atortus Sewell, 1932 which was revised by BOWMAN (1971). The diagnosis of the subgenus emended by BOWMAN (1971) should be further revised with the finding of the present new species: the female of Atortus have 2- or 3-segmented urosome. The mouthparts examination and the gut contents analysis of this new species revealed that the species was carnivorous feeding mainly on Oithona copepodids.
