The single Recent stomatopod crustacean family Squillidae is revised on the basis of characters afforded by the maxillipeds and telsons of both larvae and adults. Four families are recognized: Squillidae Latreille, 1803; Lysiosquillidae Giesbrecht, 1910; Gonodactylidae Giesbrecht, 1910; and Bathysquillidae Manning, 1967. Eight new genera based on species formerly assigned to Squilla are recognized. Two genera are removed from the synonymy of Squilla. Diagnostic features are illustrated and keys to genera of each family are presented.
