ABSTRACT: Eleven species of the polychaete family Lumbrineridae Malmgren, 1867 are reported from the Sea of Okhotsk. Ten species belong to four genera: Lumbrineris Blainville, 1828, Errano Kinberg, 1865, Paraninoe Levenstein, 1977 and Scoletoma Blainville, 1828, while one species, Lumbrineridae gen. sp., is of uncertain taxonomic status. Paraninoe abyssalis Imajima et Higuchi, 1975 is reported for the first time for the Russian fauna. Errano sp., Lumbrineris sp. 1, Lumbrineris sp. 2, and Lumbrineridae gen. sp. have never been reported from the Sea of Okhotsk and probably are new species. Lumbrineris heteropoda (Marenzeller, 1879) and Lumbrineris minuta (Théel, 1879) are included in the genus Scoletoma Blainville, 1828. Scoletoma impatiens (Claparиde, 1868), Lumbrineris latreilli (Audouin et Milne-Edwards, 1834) and Errano abyssicola (Uschakov, 1950) were previously reported from the Sea of Okhotsk by Ushakov (1955) but not found in the present study.

KEY WORDS: Polychaeta, Lumbrineridae, Sea of Okhotsk, fauna, taxonomy, distribution.
