The present study was based on the specimens collected from the Yellow Sea between Sept. 17 and 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 tidal mud flats surrounding Inchon, Korea and from the subtidal shallow waters of the Kwang-yang Bay in the southern coast of Korea. Paraonid polychaetes have not been previously reported form Korea waters. Here, a total of six species in two genera are described and illustrated, and they are newly recorded in Korea polychaetous fauna : Cirrophorus furcatus, Cirrophorus armatus, Cirrophorus branchiatus, Aricidea (Aedicira) pacifica, Aricidea (Aricidea) wassi, adn Aficidea (Acesta) assimilis.
