Samples were obtained from the continental shelf and slope off southeast and south Brazil, between 10 and 800 m. Four species of the Ophiuroidea are described and they are new records for Brazil. Two species belong to the family Ophiuridae, and the others belong to Amphiuridae and Ophiochitonidae. The family Ophiochitonidae is recorded for the first time in Brazil. Amphiodia trychna (Amphiuridae) was sampled in the inner continental shelf (depth < 50 m). The other three species were collected deeper (between 314 and 808 m).
