This is the first of several papers on the Arcturidae from the Antarctic and southern seas based on material collected by the research vessels Eltanin, Hero, and Islas Orcadas and other smaller collections and supplied by the Smithsonian Oceanographic Sorting Center. Two species from the shakedown cruise of the Hero to the Arctic are included. The paper contains descriptions of two new species and six new genera. Thirteen formerly described species are included with six redescriptions based on new specimens or reexamination of specimens of known species. All species are illustrated or re-illustrated where specimens were available. A map of the distribution of the species from Antarctic waters is included. A total of 23 species is recorded.
