Resumen: "Recent collections from the Eastern Cape province of South Africa yielded an undescribed species of the freshwater diaptomid copepod genus Lovenula. It is probably the largest paradiaptomine known and closely resembles L. falcifera (Lovén, 1845). It differs in several characters including the shape of the female genital operculum but particularly in details of the male and female leg 5: on the female the size of the endopod, a distinctive protuberance on the first exopodal segment"
