Abstract

New species of the isopod family Cirolanidae are described and figured. These include Eurydice acuticauda, E. spenceri, Cirolana bathynella, C. halei, C. triloba, C. furcata, C. similis, C. victoriae and a new genus and species Orphelana perplexa. Their systematic position within the respective genera is discussed. All species except C. victoriae and E. spenceri are known to be from subtidal habitats.
