In the deep-sea samples collected by drifting statioп "North-Pole-22" in 1977 in the Canada basin 6 species of Polynoidae were discovered. 4 species апd 3 genera are new to science: Bathypolaria carinata, Bathymiranda microcephala, Bathycanadia diaphana, Bathyedithia tuberculata. Genus Bathyedithia was coпsidered to bе endemic of ultraabyssal zone of the Pacific. It's Iast finding in the Canada basin may Ье the evidence of the ancient coпnections of the Canada basin and the basin of Paleopacific. Our data prove the differeпce between abyssal fauna of two parts of Arctic ocean divided by Lomonosov's ridge. The high degree of endemism on the generic and specific let us to consider the zoogeographical rank of studied region to be very high.
