Six species of Tubificidae are reported from abyssal depths (over 2600 m) off New York/New Jersey in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Two members of the subfamily Phallodrilinae, Bathydrilus medius Erseus, 1983 and B. sandersi Erseus, 1983, previously known only from deep-sea localities in the Northeast Atlantic, are described. The known depth distributions of all deep-sea oligochaetes known to occur in the North Atlantic (38 species of Tubificidae, three species of Enchytraeidae) are analysed, and their pattern suggests that, while abyssal species tend to be distributed on both sides of the ocean, the bathyal taxa are largely endemic to either the American or the European continental slopes.
