Abstract

Ostracoda (Myodocopina) from four of the Hawaiian Islands (Kaua'i, Moloka'i, Maui, and Hawai'i) are identified, and a new species, Pterocypridina colesi Kornicker & Harrison-Nelson, that was present on all the Islands is described and illustrated, including all five instars and the adult male and female. The genus was not previously known from the area, and its ontogeny had not been described. The number of species collected on the Islands varied from two on Moloka'i to six on Kaua'i.
