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.
