Abstract
    Specimens of Doliolids collected from a submersible at several stations off the eastern coast of North America were examined. Four species were identified, of which three were described by Godeaux (1996). Of these, one belongs to the new genus, Paradoliopsis (Godeaux, 1996). It is proposed that the order Doliolida be divided into two suborders: the Doliolidina (animals with eight muscle bands), and the Doliopsidina (animals with five muscle bands). Each suborder is represented in our collection by two families. For the Doliolidina these families are the Doliolidae (Doliolinetta intermedia) and the Doliopsoididae (Doliopsoides atlantician), and for the Doliopsidina. the families are the Doliopsidae (Doliopsis bahamensis) and the Paradoliopsidae (Paradoliopsis harbisoni).
