Collections made during the REVIZEE program along the continental shelf, oceanic banks of the Archipelago of Fernando de Noronha and the North Chain Banks of Brazil, revealed a number of tanaidaceans species belonging to the genus Apseudes (Apseudidae). Two new species, Apseudes noronhensis and A. aisoe, are described here as is the first record of the genus Apseudes in Brazilian waters. Several diagnostic characters attributed to Muramurina were found during this study to be inconsistent and Muramurina is here suggested as being a junior synonym of Apseudes.
