Abstract: In this study, Caenanthura engimatica (Kensley and Reid, 1984) is newly reported from Korea along with detailed description and illustrations. This species can be characterized by the following features: cephalon has a rostrum extending as long as anterolateral lobes; pereonites 4-6 have shallow middorsal pits; the mandible palp has 2 articles; article 1 of the mandible palp is twice longer than article 2; and the maxillipedal palp has 1-3 fused and 4-5 fused articles. This is the first report of C. engimatica beyond Arabian Gulf, the type locality, and Indian Ocean. Additionally, we proposed a revised key to known species of the genus Caenathura Kensley, 1978.
