A new gastrotrich, Xenotrichula paralineata sp. nov., is described from the Gulf coast at Biloxi, Mississippi. Thespecies is characterized as the only medium sized xenotrichulid species, lacking tentacles, that has locomotor cirri of similarsize, pedunculated dorsal scales, ovoid pluria, an oval patch of 14 transverse scales atop the head, 9 medial scales per furcalbranch, cirri beneath the gut at U47, and a furcal indentation to U82.
