Summary

Species of the superfamilies Protallocoxoidea Schultz [1978] and Stenetrioidea Wolff [1962], of the suborder Asellota, from the Antarctic and southern seas are discussed. A second species of Protallocoxoidea is described from off the southern tip of South America. The genus Stenetrium Haswell [1881] and the type species S. armatum Haswell are redescribed. Specimens of Stenetriidae from Antarctica, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa are redescribed or discussed, a total of 25 species of the genus south of the Tropic of Capricorn thus being reviewed. One of the 25 species is described in a new genus, and a previously described species is placed in a new genus. Three genera then are included in the formerly monogeneric family Stenetriidae.
