Storthyngurinae from the deep sea of the West-Atlantic sector of the Antarctic have been studied. The illustrated descriptions of three new species: Storthyngurella andeepae n. sp., Sursumura angulata n. sp., and S. longicauda n. sp. are presented. Moreover, descriptive notes additionally to the original illustrations of the holotypes of Sursumura argentica and S. falcata (George & Menzies, 1968), and a list of species of Sursumura with their distribution as well as a character table of differences between the genera Sursumura and Storthyngurella are presented.
