The present contribution on sphaeromatid isopods from shallow water coral reef locations in Kenya reports on four new species in the genera Afrocerceis n.gen., Paracilicea Stebbing, 1910 and Paradella Harrison & Holdich, 1982. They are described in detail, with remarks on their inter-specific affinities, habitat preference and biogeography. A description is further provided for Dynamenella scaptocephala Messana, 1990. Paracassidinopsis perlata (Roman, 1974) is first recorded from the African continent.
