Abstract: Dinemoleus indeprensus gen. nov., sp. nov. is a new pandarid
copepod parasitic on the recently discovered unique shark referred to as
"Megamouth." The parasite is intermediate to the genera Demoleus and
Dinemoura. It differs from members of Dinemoura in having two-segmented
rami on legs 2 and 3 rather than three-segmented rami. It is distinquished from
Demoleus, as the new genus has lamelliform fourth legs.
