Thirteen species of eolid nudibranchs were collected between October 1961 and March 1962 from mangrove roots at Port Royal, Jamaica. An additional small collection was made in Biscayne Bay, Florida, near the Institute of Marine Science, University of Miami, on April 2, 1962. Two new genera are established, Selva (Cuthonidae) and Palisa (Facelinidae), as well as three new species, Selva rubra, Palisa papillata and Godiva rubrolineata. The classification of the subfamily Facalaninae is discussed. Of the 13 species of eolids known from Jamaica, 10 occur also at Miami and 8 near São Paulo, Brazil. Four instances of eolids being parasitized by pycnogonids are described.
