Aim of our study is to gain a better knowledge about the isopod crustacean fauna of the abyssal Clarion Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCZ) located in the central Pacific Ocean. In total, we examined 22 EBS samples taken at 6 abyssal areas in the central pacific manganese nodule area (CCZ and DISCOL). The dataset comprised 619 specimens belonging to 187 species of four different isopod families: 91 species (48.6 % of total) belonging to Munnopsidae, 63 (33.6 %) to Desmosomatidae, 24 (12.8 %) to Haploniscidae and 9 (4.8 %) to Macrostylidae. The total number of species found was relatively similar between sites ranging from 38 (German Contractor area) to 50 species (French contractor area). 68 species were represented by singeletons. The ranges of distribution differ between families. In total 77 % of the species were recorded in a single area (and thus being unique for this specific area), 13.9 % in 2 areas, 5.3 % in 3 areas, 2.6 % in 4 areas and 1 % in 5 areas. The proportion of species present in a single area increased in this sequence: Munnopsidae (75.8 %), Desmosomatidae (77.7 %) and Haploniscidae (83 %). A total of 6 (66.6 %) out of 9 species of Macrostylidae was recorded in a single area contrasted by the most common species being from this family, Macrostylidae_Macrostylis_M05 with 46 specimens (present in all areas besides DISCOL) followed by several species of Munnopsidae with 10 or more specimens in the dataset. The CCZ areas show the highest number of shared species. Generally, the high diversity in each area is reflected by a low similarity between sampling areas. The rarefraction curves indicate that species richness is similar between areas, but the real number of species is still not sampled. The most distant areas from the central CCZ, the APEI3 and DISCOL, are the most different.
