The first contribution to the isopod family Joeropsidae from the Society Islands is given. All of the four species reported herein, Joeropsis gertrudae n. sp., J. minutus n. sp., J. polynesiensis n. sp., and J. salvati n. sp., are new to science. These species occur only at locations with more or less strong wave exposition. The affinities of polynesian Joeropsidae to the other members of Joeropsis are discussed.
