Abstract
A proposed new species of the benthic amphipod genus Ampelisca is described from fine coral sand off Hawaii. Ampelisca hawaiiensis, new species, is most closely related to Ampelisca schellenbergi from the western Atlantic and A. fageri from the eastern Pacific. Morphological characters useful in separating the proposed new taxon are the first coxa l plate; legs 3, 4, and 7; and uropods 2 and 3.
