An account of the Ciliata (Protozoa) recently described as epibionts on crustaceans is given herein. Eighty-seven species of ciliates are included, with indication of their taxonomic position, the basibiont crustacean species, and the localities were these epibiontic phenomena have been recorded. This overview actualizes the study of epibiosis in the Crustacea and could be of help in future research. Se proporciona una compilación de los Ciliata (Protozoo) recientemente descritos como epibiontes de crustáceos. Ochenta y siete especies de ciliados son incluídas, con indicación de su posición taxonómica, las especies de crustáceos basibiontes, y las localidades donde estos fenómenos epibióticos han sido observados. Esta revisión actualiza el estudio de la epibiosis en los Crustacea y puede ser de utilidad en futuras investigaciones.
