AbstractThe presence of an endemic cyclopoid fauna in anchihaline caves is confirmed in this paper after the discovery of two new genera of cyclopinids in caves of the Canary and Balearic Islands. Oromiina fortunata sp. nov. is described from a flooded lava tube in Lanzarote; it is characterized by the extraordinary length attained by the antennae. Ginesia longicaudata sp. nov. is described from a flooded karstic cave in Mallorca. The body is ornamented dorsally with conspicuous integumental outgrowths, and along the lateral margins of both the cephalosome and the second pedigerous somite of male, by a linear array of pores. The new taxa are most closely related to forms found in the shallow water hyperbenthos, although one trait of Ginesia suggest an affinity with deep water taxa since, for example, the linear arrays of pores were previously known only in Cyclopicina within the Cyclopinidae. A key to the 37 genera of the family Cyclopinidae is presented. © 1997 The Linnean Society of London.
