    In marine sediments from French Polynesian coral reefs, the nematode family Epsilonematidae was represented by eight species. Bathyepsilonema salvati sp. nov. and Perepsilonema moineaui sp. nov., two new species, are described and illustrated. Seven species of Draconematidae were also found. Dracograllus minutus Decraemer, Dracograllus timmi Allen and Noffsinger, and Apenodraconema chlidosis Allen and Noffsinger are redescribed and additional information is given. Four of these taxa were represented by females or juveniles only and could not be identified beyond genus.
