The family Bathyporeiidae was introduced without description, and later on, when its first proper description appeared, was not considered as new. Therefore, it cannot be currently considered as a valid family. These procedural irregularities are corrected herein, and the the family is described de novo, with Bathyporeia as its type genus.
