Abstract
    Two species of umagillid neorhabdocoels are described from sea urchins collected in Washington. Syndesmis inconspicua sp. nov., is found in the intestine of Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis, but is less common in this host than Syndisyrinx franciscanus Lehman, 1946. It is easily distinguished from S. franciscanus by its color, which is tan or pinkish brown, rather than red. Syndesmis neglecta sp. nov. inhabits the intestine of Allocentrotus fragilis.
