This study deals with Epsilonema species from Antarctica. A revision was made of epsilonematids from the German South Polar Expedition of 1901-1903 described by Steiner (1931). It is based on type specimens from Steiner's collection and on material from the U.S. Antarctic Research Program 1969-1970. Two Epsilonema species: E. cyrtum Steiner, 1931 and E. docidocricum (Steiner, 1931) Lorenzen, 1973 were identified. E. docidocricum is re-established as a valid species, characterized by a striated ornamentation of the body cuticle, 151-173 body rings, amphidial fovea without sexual dimorphism in shape and dimensions and situated posteriorly on the head, and in the male by the lack of copulatory corns. E. cyrtum is redescribed.
