A new species of Alcataenia is described from razorbills Alca torda Linnaeus from the southern region of the North Sea in the coastal waters of Belgium. It differs from known species of the genus in having 18–20 rostellar hooks measuring 63–74 µm in length. Other attributes include a cirrus-sac 145–228 µm in length, 36–49 testes and a vitelline gland measuring 114–202 × 59–112 µm. This is the first species of Alcataenia described from razorbills and appears to be the only member of the genus which is endemic to the North Atlantic basin.
