A new monoplacophoran species was collected in the northern Atlantic Ocean, east of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at a depth of 2,162 m. It is tentatively placed in Rokopella, and named R. brummeri. The species resembles R. oligotropha (Rokop, 1972), but has a much finer and predominantly striated sculpture. The description is based on shell morphology only.
