Abstract

A new species, Elanella haifensis, is described from off the coast of Israel, collected in depths ranging from 9.8–22.4 m. It is easily distinguishable from congeners by the spinulate bulbous setae III and IV of the female caudal ramus, and the shape of the male antennule. A new diagnosis is presented for the genus Elanella. This is the first record of the genus in Mediterranean waters.
