Six species of the family Odiidae (Amphipoda), including four new species, are recorded from Japan: Postodius imperfectus Hirayama, 1983; P. igneus sp. nov.; P. ornatus sp. nov.; P. striatus sp. nov.; Gordonodius zelleri (Berge, Vader and Coleman, 1999) comb. nov.; and Antarctodius japonicus sp. nov. Postodius imperfectus, the type species of the genus Postodius, is redescribed and the diagnosis of the genus is revised. It has been shown that Postodius zelleri is distinct from the four species here assigned to Postodius, and thus a new genus Gordonodius is proposed to accommodate P. zelleri. The four species of Postodius are morphologically similar for one another, but are differentiated by some minor morphological characters and the coloration in life. Antarctodius japonicus is the first representative of the genus from Japanese waters.
