Abstract

<p>A new species of sea anemone, <i>Antennapeachia jambio</i> sp. nov., was collected off Jogashima, central Japan. The presence of a single, strong siphonoglyph and physa-like aboral end, and the absence of the sphincter muscle classify this sea anemone within the family Haloclavidae. Two antenna tentacles and non-paired microcnemes categorize it into genus <i>Antennapeachia</i>, where only <i>Antennapeachia setouchi</i> Izumi and Yanagi, 2016 was included. However, unlike <i>A. setouchi</i>, <i>A. jambio</i> has two more marginal tentacles and two macrocnemes between ventral directives and ventro-lateral mesenteries. On the basis of details of these new characters of <i>Antennapeachia</i>, the diagnosis of the genus was revised to accommodate both species.</p>
