AbstractWe describe a new genus and species of polychaete worm (Polynoidae, Macellicephalinae) from a previously unsampled area of the Southern Ocean, Pine Island Bay in the Amundsen Sea. Austropolaria n. gen. is differentiated from other genera in the subfamily Macellicephalinae by a combination of morphological characters such as the number of pharyngeal papillae, body segments, elytra, and position of ventral cirrus. The type species of this genus, Austropolaria magnicirrata n. sp., is described based on morphological characters, supplemented by molecular data.
