Abstract
    Two new species of cymothoid isopods, Ceratothoa marisrubri sp. nov. and Livoneca papernea sp. nov., are described from the Red Sea coast of Israel and the Sinai peninsula. A third isopod, Nerocila sigani, is reported again from the Gulf of Eilat. A part of the specimens live as parasites on fish caught in recent years in the Gulf of Eilat; another part were recovered from the National Fish Collection of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
