Abstract: A new species of dirivultid copepod, Rhogobius pressulus, is described
from a depth of 2451 m at a hydrothermal vent on the Galapagos Rift in
the eastern Pacific. The new taxon is differentiated from its only congener by the
broad suboval fifth leg, the shape of the genital segment, and the form of the
postgenital segments. Males are unknown.
