Abstract
    A revision was made of the Bathyepsilonema species from the German South Polar Expedition of 1901-1903 described by Steiner's collection. Two species were identified: Bathyepsilonema drygalskii Steiner, 1931 and B. brachycephalum Steiner, 1931. B. brachycephalum is re-established as a valid species, characterized by a far anterior position of the amphideal fovea, 99-101 body annules and 42-51 µm long spicules. Both species were also found among material from the U.S. Antarctic Research Program 1969-1970, and are redescribed.
