A systematic study was made of the calanoid copepod genus Euaugaptilus found in Isaacs-Kidd midwater trawl and Bongo plankton net samples taken in Antarctic and Subantarctic waters. A total of 303 adult copepods representing 14 species of Euaugaptilus were found, including five new species (E. hadrocephalus, E. perasetosus, E. aliquantus, E. brevirostratus, and E. austrinus) and seven new records (E. maxillaris, E. nodifrons, E. bullifer, E. gibbus, E. angustus, E. laticeps, and E. oblongus). Euaugaptilus antarcticus (Wolfenden) is restored from synonymy. All species are characterized with pertinent descriptions and illustrations. Keys are presented for identification of the species.
