In this paper I present the species list of the polychaetes of the family Pilargidae from Mexico, an illustrated key, diagnosis, and biogeography of all the species, as well as the description of two new subfamilies, a new species, a comparison with the pilargid species richness from other regions and the suppression of the family Antonbruunidae Fauchald, 1977. In the Mexican coasts there are two subfamilies, seven genera and 14 species: Ancistargis hamata (Hartman, 1960), A. verrucosa Fauchald, 1972, Ancistrosyllis groenlandica McIntosh, 1879, A. jonesi Pettibone, 1966, Loandalia riojai n. sp., Parandalia bennei Solís-Weiss, 1983, P. fauveli (Berkeley & Berkeley, 1941), P. ocularis Emerson & Fauchald, 1972, Pilargis mirasetis Fauchald, 1972, Sigambra bassi (Hartman, 1947), S. rugosa Fauchald, 1972, S. setosa Fauchald, 1972, S. tentaculata (Treadwell 1941), and Synelmis albini (Langerhans 1881). S. tentaculata is a new record for Mexico. Loandalia riojai n. sp., collected in Manzanillo, Colima, Mexico, is characterized by one pair of eyes on peristomium, notopodial spines from setiger 7, and ventrolateral branchiae from setigers 21-24. The distribution of the species is analyzed and discussed; they are assigned into four biogeographic elements: Endemic, Disjunct, Atlantic of America, and Cosmopolitan. Half the species is endemic to the western mexican coast.
