Two species of dirivultid copepod (Siphonostomatoida), Stygiopontius senckenbergi Ivanenko & Ferrari, 2013 and Dirivultus kaiko sp. nov., were discovered from hydrothermal vent fields in the Okinawa Trough, the western North Pacific. Since S. senckenbergi was originally described based on two adult males from the New Ireland Fore-Arc system, Papua New Guinea, the discovery here represents the second record. This species was attached on ventral setae covered with filamentous bacteria of the deep-sea squat lobster Shinkaia crosnieri (Decapoda: Munidopsidae). The female of S. senckenbergi is described for the first time as well as the nauplius I and the copepodid IV. Sexual dimorphism is shown on several appendages (i.e. antennule, leg 2 and leg 5). The nauplius I shows typical lethithotrophic characteristics. Dirivultus kaiko sp. nov., which was found on the tentacular crown of the siboglinid tubeworm Lamellibrachia columna, differs from its two congeners by the antennule, maxilliped and leg 5 of both sexes. These are the second and third dirivultid species to be reported from Japan.
