Specimens of the sabellid polychaetes are exmined. They were collected in the Yellow Sea from Sept. 17 to Oct. 2, 1992 within the framework of Korea-China Yellow Sea Research Joint Program. Additional materials were also provided from the benthic samples collected from the subtidal shallow waters of the Kwang-yang Bay, Korea. Two secies of the genus Euchone (Polychaeta, Sabellidae), Euchone hancocki Banse and Euchone incolor Hartman are described and illustrated. This paper reports the first record of these two sabellids in Korea waters.
