Abstract

Cycloprosopon Lőrenthey in Lőrenthey & Beurlen, 1929, is redefined and referred to the Goniodromitidae Beurlen, 1932. Four new species, Cycloprosopon conspicuum, C. devexum, C. octonarium, C. stenofrons, as well as two new combinations, Goniodromites transsylvanicus (Lőrenthey in Lőrenthey & Beurlen, 1929) and Eodromites dobrogea (Feldman, Lazǎr & Schweitzer, 2006), resulted from the revision. Representatives of Eodromites often retain wellcalcified elements of the appendages and lateral portions of the carapace, unusual among Jurassic brachyurans.
