    Many specimens of Syllidae were sampled during several collection trips to different parts of Egyptian coastline from North to West. Most of these are typical meiofaunal species belonging to the subfamilies Exogoninae, Eusyllinae and Syllinae. In this paper, 9 species belonging to subfamily Exogoninae, genera Exogone, Sphaerosyllis and Brania are described. Two of them (Sphaerosyllis giandoi Somaschini and San Martin, 1994 and Exogone (Parexogone) gambiae Lanera, Sordino & San Martin, 1994) are endemic to the Mediterranean, while Brania arminii Hartmann-Schroder, 1971 is circumtropical species. Sphaerosyllis sp. San Martin, 2003, Sphaerosyllis glandulata San Martin, 1991 and Sphaerosyllis sandrae Alvarez and San Martin, 2008 are amphi-Atlantic, while Prosphaerosyllis fujianensis Ding & Westheide, 2008 and Exogone (Parexogone) sexoculata Hartmann-Schroder, 1979 are Indo Pacific species, they seem to be Lessepsian migrant species.
