ABSTRACT A new genus and species, Spiophanicola spinulosus, is described as a representative of a new family of poccilostomatoid copepods parasitic on three species of polychaetcs: Spio-phanesberkeleyorum Pettibone, S. missionensis Hartman, and S. kroyeri Grube collected off Huntington Beach and Santa Monica in southern California. Phylogenetic analysis of the nereicoliform families has revealed that there arc three major lines of evolution, namely, the clausidiid-synaptiphilid line, the clausiid-nereicolid line, and the catiniid-complex. The Spiophanicolidae is closest to the Serpulidicolidae on the clausiid-nereicolid line. which contains the bulk of the nereicoliform families. Another new family, the Entobiidae. is established to accommodate Entobius Dogiel, 1908, a genus that lives in the intestine of polychaetes.
