The Australian (and New Zealand) Nereidae are recorded with 47 species in 13 genera. One genus, Australonereis is new; two species, Ceratocephala edmondsi and Micronereis halei, and one subspecies, Platytinereis dumerilii antipoda are newly described. There are many new records of distribution, particularly for the species occurring in the Flindersian and Peronian provinces. The recorded data of all the species are summarised in a series of charts.
