A new ostracod species, Semicytherura obitsuensis sp. nov., is described from the intertidal zone of the Obitsu River estuary, Chiba Prefecture, central Japan. As S. obitsuensis sp. nov. individuals were collected from muddy sand bottoms in tidal creeks, possess some carapace-features comparable to those of interstitial and infaunal ostracods, and were observed to crawl in detritus rich fine-grained sediment in the laboratory, we concluded that this new species is an infaunal species.
