Abstract
    Eight new species belonging to the genus Cycloporus (Platyhelminthes, Polycladida, Euryleptidae) are described from Australasian waters including eastern and western Australia and Papua New Guinea. The widely distributed species, Cycloporus variegatus is also redescribed and photographed for the first time. This study significantly increases the number of known Cycloporus species from 6 to 14 worldwide. Species are diagnosed primarily on their colour patterns and arrangement of their eyes.
