Two specimens of Campylonotus arntzianus<br/>sp. nov. were caught in the Antarctic Scotia Sea off<br/>Saunders Island (5740.31’S, 2627.81’W) using an Agassiz<br/>trawl at one station (depth: 475–589 m). The new<br/>species described here is the fifth representative of the<br/>monogeneric family Campylonotidae, and the first of the<br/>family south of the Antarctic Convergence. Campylonotus<br/>arntzianus sp. nov. is a shrimp of about 5 cm in total<br/>length. Due to similarities in adult morphology,<br/>C. arntzianus sp. nov. seems to be closely related to<br/>C. capensis, a deep-sea species from the Southern<br/>Atlantic Ocean. A simple key for the species identification<br/>of the Campylonotidae is provided
