Abstract

The rare pelagic mysid Amblyopsoides ohlinii (W.M. Tattersall, 1951) is reported for the first time off western Mexico and represents the first record in the Pacific Ocean south of Japan and the Kurile-Kamchatka Trench. So far, this species only has been recorded from seven localities in the North Atlantic and in the North Pacific. A complete description of the only specimen available (a male), including illustrations of all appendages and SEM images of the mandibles, is provided.
