A new species of Caprellidae, Ca;rella multitberculum collected from 3 localities in the coast of the East Sea in Korea, is described and illustrated. This new species is very close to Caprella soyo Arimoto, 1934 from Japan, but is distinguished from it by having the more numerous small tubercles on body surface, the shorter flagellum of antenna 1 and the smaller appendages of abdomen. Moreover, the shape of propodus of gnathopod 2 reveals several prominent differences between the two.
