Abstract

The male of Eragia profunda Markham is described for the first time. The only known host of this species is Prionocrangon paucispina Kim & Chan and parasitized hosts have been collected from New Caledonia and Taiwan in 2100–2543 m depth. Morphology of the male and female parasites indicates that the species belongs to a group of argeiine bopyrids consisting of Argeia, Parargeia, Eragia, and Stegoalpheon.
