The bathyal and abyssal ampharetids from the Galathea Expedition 1950-1952 are treated. The material comprises at least 13 species. Four have been identified to the species level, five to the generic. Four new species: Jugamphicteis galatheae, Lysippides caeca, Paramage tasmanensis, and Phyllocomus balinensis are described. The taxonomy of the genus Jugamphicteis Fauchald & Hancock, 1981 is discussed. The species Amphicteis sargassoensis Hartman & Fauchald, 1971 is included in this genus as Jugamphicteis sargassoensis n. comb. Amphicteis gunneri malayensis Caullery, 1944 is raised to the rank of a full species: Amphicteis malayensis. The bathymetric distribution of the family is discussed.
