Abstract: Ostracods were collected on Sargassum sp. from the littoral of São Sebastião, São Paulo State, southeastern Brazil. A new species, Aurila ornellasae, is illustrated and described based on a population with various instars and adult specimens. This is the first living species of this genus described from Brazil. A brief discussion on the systematics of the genus Aurila Pokorný, 1955 and its allied genera is presented.

“…The first is also very abundant in the Brazilian equatorial shelf and occurs sporadically along the northeastern Brazilian shelf (Purper & Ornellas, 1987), whereas L. bullata has been recorded in southeastern and southern Brazil where it can withstand some changes in salinity and temperature and dwell not only bottom sediments, but Sargassum mats (see Coimbra & Bergue, 2003;Coimbra et al, 2007). According to the species recovered in these two study areas, it seems that interchange between the equatorial and northeast Brazilian shelves and the seamounts was probably more effective at Rocas Atoll, which is much closer to the Brazilian coast than Trindade Island.…”
