During the "Polarstern" expeditions of 1983-1987 to Antarctica, a large number of benthic isopods were collected. Many of these species are already known, though not always well described, but the samples also contain many new species, especially of the family Arcturidae. The descriptions found in the literature are often poor or incomplete. It is difficult to determine many of the previously described species or to identify new species. For this reason, many species are redescribed besides the description of new species. Antarcturus Zur Strassen, 1902 does not form a monophyletic unit. Though a complete revision of the genera of the Arcturidae cannot be presented, it is possible to define some new, probably, monophyletic genera. Besides the contribution of descriptions of new species, redescriptions and the establishments of new genera this book will be a good stimulus for taxonomists and phylogeneticists to work out more monophyletic groups within the polyphyletic genus Antarcturus.
