A study to clarify the systematics of some Sabellinae was conducted. The systematic importance of setae, uncini and the branchial crown of the subfamily and discussed. Twelve additional taxa in Notaulax , some of which are indeterminable or are synonyms, are listed; a key for 10 Notaulax species is provided. Megalomma bioculatum (Ehlers) and M. Lobiferum (Ehlers) are redescribed; M. Pigmentum Reish is newly reported from western Atlantic waters and additionally described; and M. Heterops, n.sp., is described from Florida.
