The Cirolaninae are a group of mostly marine isopods with a secondary unguis present on the pereopodal dactyli (Kensley & Schotte 1989).

Characters (from Kensley & Schotte 1989): Frontal lamina short, flat. Clypeus flattened, not projecting. Antennal peduncular articles 4 and 5 subequal, longer than articles 1–3. Pereopods with secondary unguis on dactyli. Penes reduced or absent. Pleonite 5 always overlapped by pleonite 4. Pleopod 2 in male with copulatory stylet articulating basally.
