Pourriotia carcharodonta gen. et sp. nov. is described from freshwater plankton collected at the subantarctic Kerguelen islands. The new taxon is provisionally placed in the Notommatidae. Main diagnostic characters separating the new taxon and the other genera of the family are provided by the morphology of the trophi. Apical rami chambers with toothed inner margin and blunt projection on outer margin. Apical rami teeth and subuncinal teeth with accessory spines. Proximal margin of major uncinal teeth firmly connected to distal margin of apical chambers, forming grasping unit. Fulcrum dumb-bell-shaped. Information is presented on the trophi structure of the genus Pleurata (Notommatidae).
