This paper deals with a new species of Myrianida collected from Rhodes Island at 1 m depth among algae in April 2014. This new species is mainly characterized by having flattened dorsal cirri; high number of falcigers in parapodia; a trepan with 16 unequal teeth; and a brownish patch (in fixed specimen) on dorsum of each segment. Individuals are at the stage of reproduction, with developing stolons.
