Nectoneanthes Imajima, 1972, which has been regarded as a synonym of Neanthes Kinberg, 1865 and later of Alitta Kinberg, 1865, is resurrected in the present study, with evidence showing that the type species of Nectoneanthes (N. oxypoda Marenzeller, 1879) is not a synonym of Neanthes succinea (Leuckart, 1847), but a valid species. Nectoneanthes oxypoda and Neanthes succinea are redescribed with newly found characteristics. The following seven species are judged as junior synonyms of Nectoneanthes oxypoda: Nectoneanthes latipoda Paik, 1973; Nectoneanthes multignatha Wu, Sun and Yang, 1981; Nectoneanthes donghaiensis He, 1987; Nereis ijimai Izuka, 1912; Nereis alatopalpis Wesenberg-Lund, 1949; Nereis singularis Wesenberg-Lund, 1949, and Nereis (Nereis) legeri Gravier and Dantan, 1934. Nectoneanthes is composed of two species: Nectoneanthes oxypoda and Nectoneanthes uchiwa sp. nov. which is described here. The combination Neanthes succinea is also resurrected, reversing the placement in Alitta. Neanthes succinea seems to have been introduced recently to Asia and Australia
