Abstract: A new podocerid amphipod, Leipsuropus seisuiae sp. nov., from 338-340 m depth in the Kumano Sea, Japan, Northwestern Pacific, is described. This is the deepest record of any Leipsuropus species. Leipsuropus seisuiae sp. nov. is distinguished from four other congeneric species in having: i) pereonites 2-5 each with five narrow spiniform projections on tergal plate, ii) one dorsal tubercle on the telson, and iii) one small, proximal, denticulate projection on gnathopod-2 palmar margin. A key to males of the species of Leipsuropus is provided.
