Abstract: A new Mesocyclops species, M. dadayi, has been described from India (Calcutta). M. dadayi sp. n. has all the characteristics of Thermocyclopoides-circle and can be distinguished from other representatives of the circle by hairy intercoxal sclerite of leg 4. Character analysis suggests West African M. dussarti Van de Velde, 1984 to be the closest relative of M. dadayi. Key to fourteen Afro-Asian representatives of the Thermocyclopoides-circle is added.Keywords:
