The marine isopod fauna of Singapore is reviewed on the basis of specimens collected during the Comprehensive Marine Biodiversity Survey of Singapore between 2010 and 2014. Museum collections and accepted literature records were also included. A total of 117 species in 64 genera and 19 families was documented. Of these 117 species, there were 37 new records for Singapore (including specimens representing 15 genera recorded for the first time from Singapore which were not identified to species) and a further 15 species possibly new to science. The 22 species that were identified and determined as new records for Singapore comprised eight families: one species of Aegidae, three species of Cirolanidae, three species of Cymothoidae, 11 species of Sphaeromatidae, one species of Stenetriidae, one species of Arthuridae, one species of Bopyridae and one species of Janiridae.
