Plectus antarcticus de Man, 1904 and P. frigophilus Kirjanova, 1958 are described, with emphasis on the male collected from the Soya Coast, East Antarctica. P. antarcticus has been previously synonymized with P. parietinus Bastian, 1865 and P. cirratus Bastian, 1865 on the basis of female characteristics but differs clearly from them by the male having the spicules not supported by a gubernaculum and one precloacal tubular supplement. P. frigophilus shows some variations in the features of the gubernaculum, precloacal supplement and caudal setae. The present study suggests that P. antarcticus and P. frigophilus may have been independently derived from different ancestral species and have become specialized in the Antarctic.
