In the present paper two new species of harpacticoid copepods (family Canthocamptidae) are described from several subterranean localities in Montenegro, Crmnica region. Moraria jana n.sp. is most similar to M. catalana Chappuis & Kiefer, 1952. It is also alike M. brevipes (Sars, 1863). Elaphoidella montenegrina n.sp. belongs to the “gracilis”-group and is similar to E. pescei Apostolov, 1986. Both species are stygobionts and probably acyclic.
