Hemimysis margalefi sp. nov., a troglobiont mysid from a submarine cave of the island of Majorca (Western Mediterranean) was proposed and described. The species is similar to H. lamornae mediterranea, but is distinguished by its small size (4.12-5.20 mm); 3 carpopropodial segments; 3 spines on the endopod of the uropod; 8-11 spines on the margin of the telson and 20-30 small teeth in the cleft; and by the distal article of the endopodite of the maxilla oval, armed with a row of 8 distal spines.
