Three new species of Tanaidacea are described from the Portuguese Selvagen Islands in the Mid-Atlantic, and collected during the EMPC expedition on board the “N.R.P. Almirante Gago Coutinho” in the summer of 2010. The new species belong to the tanaidomorphan genera, Bathyleptochelia, Pseudoarthrura, and Typhlotanais.
