The nereidids from the western coasts of Mexico collected by the Allan Hancock Pacific Expeditions (1933–1970), which are deposited in the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, are analyzed. Twenty five species belonging to the subfamilies Gymnonereidinae (four species) and Nereidinae (21) are reviewed. A new genus characterized by the presence of both paragnaths and papillae in pharyngeal areas VII and VIII is described, along with three new species from the genera Eunereis, Nereis and Rullierinereis.
