Abstract: The calanoid copepod Eurytemora velox is reported for the first time in Iceland from the Bessastaðatjörn Lake. This is the dominant crustacean species in the littoral zooplankton. The morphological features in the specimens concerning the shape and ornamentation with spines and fine short setae of leg 5 in females and males vary. Asymmetry in the spine ornamentation on the ultimate segment of leg 5 in two females was observed.
