Abstract
    Syllis cornuta Rathke , 1843 is commonly recorded from the Southern Gulf of México. A recent comparison of specimens from the type locality area with the description of the neotype of S. cornuta and other material revealed that these records refer to an undescribed species. The new species is described herein as Syllis lagunae sp. nov., being unique in having bidentate pseudospinigers in which pectination reaches the subdistal tooth. The ventral cirrus is long and metameric discocilia structures are present. A neotype of Syllis mexicana (Rioja, 1960) is designated from the type locality (Términos Lagoon, Campeche, México) and a full description of the species is given
