Abstract

Examination of a single specimen of glypheoid lobster from the collections of The Natural History Museum, London, warrants designation of a new species, Glyphea macromuscula. The specimen, collected from Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK, increases the number of Early Jurassic glypheids to eleven, and the number of species of Glyphea from the United Kingdom to six.
