El nuevo isópodo difiere de Glossobius impressa (Say) en que: (1) tiene 7-8 segmentos en la antena; (2) los pereonites 4 y 5 son approximadamente de la misma longitud; (3) el pereonite 7 no se extiende sobre los pleonites; (4) el pleon es mas ancho que el telson; (5) los urópodos se extienden mas allá del telson. Los oostegites de G. hemiramphi se forman en una sola muda. La parte anterior expuesta de este isópodo está densamente pigmentada, distinto a la mayoría de los isópodos que habitan la cavidad bucal. La pigmentación puede servirle de camuflaje al isópodo en huéspedes infestados.
