Abstract
    Seven species of isopods (including Stenetrium vernae sp. nov. and Jaeropsis monsmarinus sp. nov.) and nineteen species of decapods (including Pseudodromia cacuminis sp. nov. and Macropodia cirripiulus sp . nov.) are recorded from seamounts Vema and Tripp, and the Lüderitz area. Zoogeographically, the isopods show strong affinities with the South African fauna, while the decapods include mainly South African and West African forms, with single Indo- Pacific and Austral species.
