The present paper deals exclusively with the species of the family Laophontidae found in samples gathered during several expeditions of the University of Amsterdam to the West Indies. Four new species belonging to different genera are described. Two new species and Laophonte adriatica are assigned to a new genus: Lipomelum n. gen. Furthermore, additional information on seven other laophontids is given.
