Collections of cirolanid isopods taken from Heron Island and adjacent reefs of the Capricorn Group of the Great Barrier Reef are reported. One species of Eurydice, and five species of Cirolana are recorded, three new to science and one, C. parva, constituting a new record for Australia. Brief notes on the ecology and distribution of the species are given, and a key is provided to the known species of the “group Hansenolana” of the genus Cirolana. The systematics of these species are discussed.
