A new species and genus of Tanaidacea is described from the deep sea off Antarctica. Magotanais n. gen. resembles the genus Tanaella Norman & Stebbing, 1886 in its habitus. The biramous uropod, the form of the pars molaris, and the absence of coxae on the pereopods distinguishes it clearly from species belonging to the genus Tanaella. This genus is conformed by one species Magotanais pruinosus n. sp.
