Abstract
    The marine cyclopoid, Cyclopicina longifurcata (Scott) is redescribed on the basis of the holotype and a second female, recently collected in deep water in the North Atlantic off the Azores. Cyclopicina is one of the most primitive cyclopoids known, displaying many of the extreme plesiomorphic character states in the family Cyclopinidae. A key to genera of the subfamily Cyclopininae is presented and three new genera, Herbstina, Erythropolites, and Glareolina, are established.
