Nectoneanthes oxypoda (Marenzeller, 1879) and N. alatopalpis (Wesenberg-Lund, 1949) are synonymized with Neanthes succinea Leuckart, 1847. Nectoneanthes Imajima, 1972, with type species Nereis (Alitta) oxypoda Marenzeller, thus becomes a junior synonym of Neanthes Kinberg, 1866. An undescribed species of Neanthes is recognized. Nectoneanthes ijimai (Izuka, 1912) is one more referred to Neanthes, and Nectoneanthes latipoda Paik, 1973 and N. multignatha Wu, Sun & Yang, 1981 are referred to Neanthes for the first time.
