The present Axioidea-material was collected by the R/V “Hakuhou-maru”, University of Tokyo, in 2005 and the R/V “Nagasaki-maru”, University of Nagasaki, during biological surveys in the East China Sea in 2004-2005. The material collected during these cruises comprises three families, four genera including one new genus, and four species including three new species. These taxa are: Axiidae Huxley, 1879 with Acanthaxius Sakai & De Saint Laurent, 1989, A. gotoensis sp. nov., and Batyaxius gen. nov., B. sugurui sp. nov.; Calocarididae Ortmann, 1891 with Ambiaxius Sakai & De Saint Laurent, 1989, A. alcocki (McArdle, 1900); and Eiconaxiidae Sakai & Ohta, 2005 with Eiconaxius Bate, 1888, E. kumejimaensis sp. nov.
