Summary. The genus Bathyvermilia gen. nov. is established for two abyssal serpulid species originally described under Placostegus ornatus by Mclntosh (1885), and Vermiliopsis langerhansi by Fauvel (1909), the name emphasizing their morphological affinities to Vermiliopsis, sensu stricto, as well as their deep-sea distribution. Since the name Placostegus ornatus is preoccupied by a littoral species described by March (1863), Mclntosh's deep-sea species from the Central North and South Pacific is renamed Bathyvermilia challengeri sp. nov. It is pointed out that Bathyvermilia langerhansi, a deep-sea species from the Central Atlantic, had been confused with littoral forms of Vermiliopsis, sensu stricto, from the Mediterranean, Brittany and the Azores. Additional comments are made on two other Central Pacific abyssal serpulid species of doubtful generic status, Placostegus benthalianus and Placostegus moerchii, both incompletely described by Mclntosh (1885).
