Species [23] representative of 15 heteronemertean genera are recorded from Antarctic and Subantarctic waters south of latitude 50.degree. S. The following 5 new genera are established and 7 new species are fully described and illustrated: CEPHALURICHUS antarcticus gen. et sp. nov., DOKONEMERIES magellanensis gen. et sp. nov., D. macquariensis sp. nov., MICRELLIDES multiperula gen. et sp. nov., PARAMICRURINELLA falklandica gen. et sp. nov., Parborlasia landrumae sp. nov. and ZODIONEMERTES chilensis gen. et sp. nov. Baseodiscus antarcticus Baylis, Antarctolineus scotti (Baylis), Lineus longifissus (Hubrecht) and Parborlasia fueguina Serna de Esteban et Moretto are redescribed and illustrated. The nature of rhynchodaeal pouches protruding into the cephalic blood lacunae of Parborlasia corrugatus (McIntosh) is reexamined and discussed. The main anatomical characters of the remaining 11 spp. are recorded. Of these only Parapolia grytvikenensis Wheeler, Cerebrotulus malvini Wheeler, Chilineus glandulosa (Buerger), Huilkia ushuaiensis Serna de Esteban et Moretto, Micrura pacifica Friedrich and Wiotkenia friedrichi Serna de Esteban et Moretto can at present be accepted as valid, although incompletely described, taxa. Cerebratulus larseni Wheeler, C. validus Buerger, L. autrani Joubin and L. turqueti Joubin are so poorly and inadequately described that their taxonomic status cannot be verified; the recorded occurrence of L. nigricans Buerger in southern latitudes cannot be substantiated on the available evidence. Maps showing the recorded distribution of all the species are included and a key to the 18 validated species is provided.
