Quantitative collections from sand beaches and inshore waters at Watamu, Kenya, revealed eight species of eurydicid isopod, of which seven are new to science. Descriptions of these species are given together with details of their distribution, ecology and behavior. Patterns of zonation shown by these isopods are compared with similar zonation patterns found elsewhere, and the use of these isopods as indicator species of zones on sand beaches is discussed.
