The genus Malmgrenia McIntosh, 1874, was recently synonymised with Harmothoe Kinberg, 1855 by Tebble and Chambers (1982). Eighteen species have been referred to Malmgrenia by previous authors. Examinations of type material (where possible), descriptions and additional material in this study indicate the species formerly referred to Malmgrenia are an artificial, polyphyletic group. Six of the species are referred to Harmothoe, two to Halosydna Kinberg 1855, one to Hololepidella Willey 1905, and a new genus Lobopelma is erected for M. microscala Kudenov, 1977. The status of the remaining species is discussed.
