In this paper the description of Nooralia bulgannabooyanga, a new genus and species of Syllidae (Polychaeta), is given. The new genus is characterized by having a very small proventriculus, an unarmed pharynx, short dorsal cirri, except those of chaetiger 1, long antennae, two long pairs of tentacular cirri, long dorsal cirri on chaetiger 1, palps mostly free, fused at bases, both compound chaetae and simple dorsal chaetae on parapodia, and by dorsal brooding by compound notochaetae similar in shape to neurochaetae. The systematic position of the new genus in the family Syllidae and its relationships with other genera of the family is uncertain but is considered close to the subfamily Exogoninae. Comments on the external brooding and systematic implications are also included.
