Abstract: All maximal finite (absolutely) irreducible subgroups of $ GL(8,{\mathbf{Z}})$ are determined up to Z-equivalence. Moreover, we present a full set of representatives of the Z-classes of the maximal finite irreducible subgroups of $ GL(n,{\mathbf{Z}})$ for $ n \leqslant 9$ by listing generators of the groups, the corresponding quadratic forms fixed by these groups, and the shortest vectors of these forms.
