A new species of the genus Aricidea (Paraonidae) from the Indian River lagoon of the east coast of Florida is described below. Specimens were collected by Dr. David K. Young and his staff of the Smithsonian Institution's Fort Pierce Bureau (FPB). Additional specimens from the west coast of Florida, collected by Dr. John L. Taylor and Mr. Stuart L. Santos and deposited in the National Museum of Natural History (USNM), were examined and referred to the new species.
I am grateful to Dr. Young for the loan of specimens from the Indian River, to Ms. Ruth Swanson, Dr. Donald Maurer, and Dr. Les Watling for useful criticism during preparation of the manuscript, and to Sandy Steele for careful typing of the final draft. I particularly wish to thank Dr. Marian H. Pettibone of the Smithsonian Institution for the loan of specimens, for considerable assistance with some of the literature and systematic problems, and for critically reviewing the manuscript. Types are deposited in the Smithsonian Institution (USNM). This is contribution 109, University of Delaware, College of Marine Studies.
