Limnoria saseboensis is a small, marine, wood-boring isopod, commonly known as a gribble. It was first described from Kyushu, Japan and is thought to be native there. Populations are also known from Australia, where it is cryptogenic (i.e. native or non-native status is currently unknown). In 1950, six introduced individuals were collected in Biscayne Bay, Florida, but no specimens have been seen since. It lives in male-female pairs inside boring tunnels, and has been collected in pine and hardwood test blocks, rotting logs, and wharf pilings. No specific impacts have been reported for this species.
