A new, Neotropical species of Acanthocyclops (Copepoda: Cyclopoida: Cyclopidae)
Acanthocyclops smithae, a new species of cyclopoid copepod and a member of the A. vernalis-robustus group, is described from Honduras and southeastern Mexico. The few previous records of species of Acanthocyclops in tropical latitudes apparently refer to isolated populations of a few widespread temperate species. Acanthocyclops smithae is the only known exclusively tropical member of the genus.
