Abstract
    Gnathostenetroidoidea were not recorded before from the eastern Atlantic. In lava debris (sand, gravel) in the mediolittoral zone of Tenerife, Canary Islands, two new Isopoda belonging to this superfamily are encountered. One belongs to a new genus, Dignatroides , closely related to the Mediterranean genus Gnathostenetroides. The other belongs to the genus Caecostenetroides, previously known from the Mediterranean and Japan. An unidentifyable member of the superfamily (only known in the female sex) is found in anchihaline cave waters of the Canarian island of Hierro.
