The oligochaete fauna of Bermuda, known only from few studies, is further investigated and marine species belonging to the families Enchytraeidae and Tubificidae, three new to science, two new for Bermuda, are described. Among the tubificids are 3 new Phallodrilus-species, two of them without mouth opening and normal gut. Their systematically and ecologically relevant features and the position of the genus Phallodrilus in respect to Adelodrilus are discussed briefly.
