Abstract

Several washed bottom samples, with an abundant ostracode fauna, were obtained from the Louisiana Continental Shelf southwest of the Mississippi River Delta. The samples were given to the writer for the purpose of studying the ostracode assemblages. A new species of the genus Echinocythereis Puri, 1953, was found and is described in this paper.
