Abstract
    Cycliophorans are the most recently discovered animal phyla (Funch & Kristensen 1995). They are minute sessile organisms that live on the mouthparts of the Dublin Bay prawn or Norway lobster Nephrops norvegicus.

    A lack of morphological data has made the true phylogenetic relationship of Cycliophora difficult to determine, however examination of its ribosomal RNA (Winnepenninckx et al. 1998) has revealed a close relationship with acanthocephalans and rotifers.The phylum is at present represented by one species which has been recorded from Denmark, Sweden, the Faeroes Islands and the Firth of Clyde, UK (O'Reilly 1997). It appears likely its distribution is related to that of its host.
