The nereidids from the western coasts of Mexico collected by the Allan Hancock Pacific Expeditions (1933-1970), which are deposited in the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, are analyzed. Twenty five species belonging to the subfamilies Gymnonereidinae (four species) and Nereidinae (21) are reviewed. A new genus [Imajimainereis] characterized by the presence of both paragnaths and papillae in pharyngeal areas VII and VIII is described, along with three new species from the genera Eunereis, Nereis and Rullierinereis.
