Cycliophorans represent a phylum of small multicellular animals previously recorded only from the mouthparts of three species of lobsters in the family Nephropidae. In a survey of museum material representing a broad sampling of crustacean taxa, cycliophorans were found on several nephropid specimens but on specimens of no other crustacean species. This suggests that cycliophoran host range is indeed limited.
