Gulcamptus huronensis Reid, 1996 is a seldom-reported harpacticoid copepod known only from two female specimens, one collected from Lake Huron, Michigan, USA, the other from Nunatak Creek, Alaska, USA. Herein, we report a new distributional record for G. huronensis from the meiobenthos of Lake Superior, Michigan and Wisconsin, USA. A total of 12 specimens were collected from four localities across Lake Superior in August, 2018. Additionally, we provide information on the habitats where specimens of G. huronensis were recovered and morphological notes on the previously undescribed male of the species.
