Abstract
    The present study describes a new polychaete species belonging to the family Eunicidae, Marphysa cinari sp. nov., collected from the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean Sea (eastern Mediterranean), and re-describes Marphysa disjuncta Hartman, 1961 and Marphysa kinbergi McIntosh, 1910. The new species is mainly characterized by having unidentate subacicular hooks with a terminal hood and compound falciger chaetae on posterior parapodia. The shape of unidentate hooks of M. cinari is a very important character for distinguishing this species from other species. Atlantic species M. kinbergi and Pacific species M. disjuncta are very close species and the present paper deals with the differences and similarities between them and the new taxon.
