Sabellidae species from the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Archipelago waters, including the North-eastern Atlantic Ocean and Cantabrian and westernmost Mediterranean Seas, were studied. The species Amphicorina rovignensis, Dialychone dunerificta, D. usticensis, Euchone cf. limnicola, Euchone cf. pseudolimnicola, Megalomma lanigera, Parasabella tenuicollaris and P. tommasi are recorded for the first time in the area. Bispira primaoculata sp. nov. is a newly described species for the Alborán Sea, characterized by having semicircular branchial lobes, rounded and long dorsal basal flanges, an axial skeleton composed of six longitudinal rows of vacuolated cells, up to three pairs of compound eyes per radiole mainly distributed in the distal half of the crown, appearing at the level of the dorsalmost pair of radioles, and a first chaetiger maximally twice as long as subsequent ones. New information about the habitats of A. rovignensis, D. dunerificta and M. lanigera is also provided.
