Selenisca gratiosa Von Meyer, 1847, from the Late Jurassic of Germany, previously has only been illustrated by the original line drawing, and the whereabouts of the holotype and sole specimen has been obscure. Discovery that the specimen is in the collections of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, has permitted redescription and illustration of the material as well as confirmation of placement in the superfamily Glypheoidea and family Mecochiridae.
