Data on the external morphology are reviewed and new information is provided about the structure of the first naupliar instar of Parthenopea subterranea Kossmann, a rare and poorly known species of rhizocephalan barnacles. The taxonomic position of P. subterranea, which has so far been uncertain, is discussed. A new family, Parthenopeidae fam. nov., is erected to include a single genus, Parthenopea, with a single species, P. subterranea. The distinctive characters of the new family are described.
