One represents a new genus and species, Polymastigos reishi, and fifteen others are new species: Peresiella platyalia, Mediomastus warrenae, Heteromastus hutchingsae, Neomediomastus leptus, Capitellethus danida, Leiochrides andamanus, Leiocapitella hartmanae, Rashgua branchiatus, Dodecaseta fauchaldi, D. eibyejacobseni, Dasybranchus eisigi, Promastobranchus orbiculatus, Scyphoproctus glabrus, S. lumenalis and S. fasciculatus. Descriptions and illustrations are presented for all thirty-one species. Keys to genera and species are included with a primary focus on species reported from the Indian Ocean.
