This list of six species of Syllidae is another contribution to the study of littoral meiofaunal polychaetes from the Chinese coast, of which the syllids comprise most of the species. They were sampled in the north near Yantai and in the south of China at various places on the Island of Hainan. Petitia amphophthalma Siewing, 1956 and Pionosyllis homocirrata (Hartmann-Schröder, 1958) are representatives of the many interstitial polychaete species settling worldwide in exposed sand beaches. Psammosyllis wui, Odontosyllis rubens, Pionosyllis corallicola and Syllides sanyaensis are new to science.
