In all, 15 species of amphinomid and euphrosinid polychaetes are reported from collections taken primarily by the U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) sponsored cruises to Antarctic and Subantarctic waters. A new genus and nine new species are described as follows: Amphinomidae: Chloeia australis; Euphrosinidae: Euphrosine abyssalis, E. antarctica, E. armata, E. echidna, and E. monroi; and Euphrosinopsis new genus: Euphrosinopsis antipoda, E. crassiseta, and E. horsti. The amphinomid genus Branchamphinome Hartman, 1967, the euphrosinid genera Euphrosine Lamarck, 1818 and Euphrosinella Detinova, 1985, and the species Branchamphinome antarctica are emended; lectotypes and paralectotypes are designated for the latter species. Pareurythoe chilensis (Kinberg, 1858) is newly reported from South Australia. Previous records and the endemicity of the order Amphinomida from Antarctica are discussed; a preliminary systematic scheme modified from Horst  is given for all described species as Euphrosine, Euphrosinella, and Euphrosinopsis; and a key to all known species of Antarctic amphinomid, euphrosinid, and spintherid polychaetes, considered valid, is also presented.
