- for the taxon Cyclostomata, which comprises the extant jawless fishes: the hagfish (Myxini) and the lampreys (Petromyzontidae). This was thought for a time to be a paraphyletic group and this usage of the term was deprecated by some. However, there is strong molecular evidence for cyclostome monophyly, and thus the term remains in use.
- for the Order Cyclostomatida of bryozoans, tiny animals that live in colonies and form large calcitic skeletons
- for one of two subgroups of braconid wasps
