The Chrysopetalidae are compared with other families in the order Phyllodocida. Treptopale. n. gen., and Hyalopale, n. gen., are proposed. Chrysopetalum hernancortezae, C. heteropalea, C. floridanum. C. eurypalea. Treptopale rudolphi, and Hyalopale bispinosa, all new species, are described from Aorida. Chrysopetalum remanei. n. sp., is described from the Red Sea. Chrysopetalum debile (Grube), C. occidentale Johnson, C. elegans Bush, Bhawania goodei Webster, and B. heteroseta (Hartman), n. comb., from various areas are additionally described. The status of Chrysopetalum elongatum (Grube) from the Virgin Islands is discussed. Important characters of the above genera plus Paleanotus Schmarda, Dysponetus Levinsen, and three unnamed generic groups are discussed. A generic key and keys to Floridan species of Chrysopetalum and Bhawania are provided.
