The dorvilleid Ikosipodoides seychellensis gen. et sp. nov, from shallow sands on a reef flat of the island of Mahe is described. The new species is in general very similar to the taxon Ikosipodus Westheide, 1982 but lacks a jaw apparatus and has 7 instead of 10 chaetigerous segments. Its evolutionary origin is discussed.
