During the expedition ANT XI/3 with RV Polarstern 17 multiple corers were taken in the Bellingshausen Sea. From this material only a single, immature isopod was sorted. This specimen is a manca II of a presumably new species of the genus Storthyngura. However, as it is immature and only a single specimen was sampled, more material of this species will have to be collected prior to the description of a new species.
