Some 37 species of Polychaeta, collected from widely scattered, world-wide areas, mostly from deep water, have been referred, either directly or indirectly, to Macellicephala McIntosh or included in the subfamily Macellicephalinae, as revised by Hartmann-Schröder. These species are reviewed and revised herein, based in large part on a reexamination of the original material. A single species is referred to Euarche Ehlers, as a new combination in the Polyodontidae (= Acoetidae). The other species are retained in the Polynoidae and placed in seven subfamilies, five of which are new (Macellicephaloidinae, Macelloidinae, Bathyedithinae, Polaruschakovinae, Bathymacellinae) and the other two emended (Macellicephalinae, Harmothoinae). Of the 17 genera involved, three are emended (Macellicephala, Macellicephaloides, Macelloides), ten are new (Bathykermadeca, Bathyeliasona, Bathyvitiazia, Bathyfauvelia, Bathycatalina, Bathykurila, Bathyedithia, Polaruschakov, Bathylevensteina, Gesiella), one is given a new name (Bathymacella, for Macella Averincev); two are considered to be doubtful (Herdmanella Darboux, Sinantenna Hartmann-Schröder), and a synonym is referred to Austrolaenilla Bergström. Of the 36 polynoid species, 17 are revised, 13 as new combinations, three as synonyms and one as a new species {Polaruschakov reyssi); seven species are considered to be doubtful.
