Abstract

The present paper contains descriptions of two new species and one new genus: Latinopsis patagonica gen. nov., sp. nov., and Candona quasiincarum sp. nov. Both species were collected during a two-month Franco-Chilean expedition to Madre de Dios archipelago in January and February 2006. The following new systematic arrangements are proposed: L. anisitsi (Daday, 1905) comb. nov., L. columbiensis (Mehés, 1914) comb. nov., and L. falclandica (Vávra, 1898) comb. nov. Latinopsis anisitsi is redescribed from the type material and a lectotype is designated. Two species are excluded from the subfamily Candoninae, one of which is Danielocandona albida (Sars, 1901). After examination of the type material the species is reclassified as Neocypridopsis albida (Sars, 1901) comb. nov. A checklist of the known species of Candoninae of South America and the West Indies is provided
