Three new species belonging to the family Resomiidae (Siphonophora: Physonectae) are described from material mainly collected by ROVs in the vicinity of Monterey Bay, California, USA, with some additional submersible-collected specimens from The Bahamas. Although these species, Resomia ornicephala, R. persica, and R. dunni, show some differences from those previously described, particularly in the shape of the nectophores, they have all been placed in the genus Resomia. They retain the basic characteristic of having two forms of tentilla on the same tentacle, the more proximal form, with a
spirally coiled cnidoband, becoming reconfigured into the more distal form, usually with a zigzagged cnidoband, although in one of the new species the zigzagging of the cnidoband is less well-defined.
