The lernanthropid copepod, Lernanthropus atrox Heller, 1865, is reported based on two adult females from the gills of goldlined seabream, Rhabdosargus sarba (Forsskål, 1775) (Perciformes, Sparidae), in the East China Sea off the west coast of Kagoshima Prefecture, southern Kyushu, Japan. This represents a new host record for L. atrox and the first record of the species from Kyushu.
