Abstract

The present study reports a new record of the suctorian ciliate Thecacineta calix (Schröder, 1907) as an epibiont of harpacticoid copepods from the mesophotic coral ecosystems of Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands (St. John). Morphological measurements of the epibionts are presented. Distribution and host specificity of T. calix is also discussed.
