identified. Thirteen species in three suborders are described as new: suborder

Paranthura nordenstami; suborder Asellota, Joeropsis acoloris, Joeropsis bicornis,
Joeropsis limbatus, Joeropsis trilabes, Salvatiella islapascua, Uromunna biloba, Paramunna
pellucida, Santia longisetae; suborder Flabellifera, Exosphaeroides quadricosta.
Seven species were identified only to genus: Apanthura sp., Eisothistos sp., Carpias
sp., Maresiella sp., Metacirolana sp., Munna sp., Panathura sp. The shallow-water
marine isopods show an endemism of over 90%.
