Abstract
    Two new species of cirolanid isopods, Baharilana kiabii sp. nov. from the western coasts of Qeshm Island and Cirolana tarahomii sp. nov. from the northern cost of Kish Island and the western coasts of Qeshm Island in the Persian Gulf are described. Baharilana kiabii sp. nov. is characterized by pleonite 5 with a median projection and a pleotelson with two longitudinal, parallel ridges and small tubercles on the dorsal surface. Cirolana tarahomii sp. nov. is distinguished by a lateral margins of the frontal lamina converging slightly towards the base, the distal margin is extended with a narrowly rounded apex; appendix masculina distally acute with bifid apex, pleotelson with a broadly rounded apex and 8 marginal robust setae, uropodal rami not deeply bifid.
