AbstractDysponetus bipapillatus, new species, and D. macroculatus, new species, are described from shallow sediments in the Bay of Naples. Italy. and from the Madang area Papua New Guinea, respectively. Comparisons are made with other Dysponetus species. Dysponetus bipapillatus appears closely related to D. caecus (Langerhans, 1880) and D. macroculatus to D. bidentatus Day, 1954. Dysponetus bipapillatus is unique in having a pair of papillae on segment 8 on some of the examined specimens, and D. macroculatus. in the combination of large distinct eyes and presence of ventral tentacular cirri on segment 2.
