Two new species of minute troglobitic cyclopoid copepods belonging to Speleoithona gen. nov. and Speleoithonidae fam. nov. are described based on adult females and males caught from the plankton in anchialine caves on Eleuthera and San Salvador Islands, Bahamas. Speleoithona is distinguished from other cyclopoids by the structure of the P5, rostrum and mandibular palp, number of segments and armature of the A1, presence of a row of pinnules on the caudal face of the Exp3 P2-P4, and absence of the inner apical seta on the caudal rami. Interspecific variation has been observed on the Enp P4, apical setae of the caudal rami, P5 of both sexes, and P6 of males.
