Seven species of Paracilicaea are recorded from intertidal habitats on the coasts of Somalia and the Yemen, Western Indian Ocean. Paracilicaea falcata n. sp., P. mirabilis n. sp., P. nodosa n. sp., P. peniculata n. sp. and P. uncinata n. sp. are described. The genus Paracilicaea Stebbing 1910 from the Indo-Pacific region is revised and redefined. Four species are excluded from Paracilicaea and are here regarded as “incertae sedis”: P. dakini (Tattersall 1922), P. fimbriata Kussakin et al. 1990…

It is suggested that reappraisal of sphaeromatid generic characters in cladistic terms is a necessary first step in terms of establishing the monophyly of many sphaingroup isopod genera.

Relationships of the Sphaeromatidae genera ( Peracarida : Isopoda ) inferred from 18 S rDNA and 16 S rDNA genes

The Sphaeromatids’ impressive exploitation of diverse habitats, in combination with diversity in female life history strategies and elaborate male combat structures, has resulted in extraordinary levels of homoplasy.

The genera discussed are reviewed world-wide and among the non-Australian species: Exosphaeroma papillae Bayliff is transferred to the genus Sphaeromatinae; Dynoides amblysinus Pillai, Dynoide castroi Loyola e Silva and Exoshaeroma globicaudum (Dana) are transferred toThe genus Clianella Boone.

An illustrated key to the genera of the family Sphaeromatidae, based on adult male specimens, is provided and it is suggested that the current sphaeromatography subfamilies, based only on the folding of pleopods 4 and 5, may not reflect a natural classification.
