Two new species of Spionidae, Scolelepis (Scolelepis) melasma and S. (S.) dicha are described from the intertidal area of exposed Tahitian beaches. The species co-occur and are restricted to basaltic sandy beaches. Scolelepis (S.) melasma is characterized by the absence of an occipital tentacle, neuropodial unidentate, hooded hooks beginning on setiger 40-41, notopodial hooded hooks absent and branchiae fused basally. Scolelepis (S.) dicha also lacks an occipital tentacle, with neuropodial bidentate, hooded hooks beginning from setiger 26-32 and with posterior neuropodia having almost all hooded hooks, notopodal hooks absent, and branchiae fused basally.
