Two species of Cladocera and eight species of Copepoda (Crustacea) are reported from Somalia; six are first records for that country. No species are new to science. Besides a few that appear to be endemic to North-East Africa, several are interesting range extensions. Halicyclops thermopbilus Kiefer, 1925, a brackish-water species fringing the coasts of the Indian Ocean, is figured in detail.
