Medusae from the Beibu Gulf, in the Northern South China Sea, are described from 364 samples collected during seven seasonal oceanographic censuses from Jan., Apr., July and Oct. 2007, Jan. and July 2008, and Jan. 2009. A total of 67 species were identified, three of which are new to science: Tregoubovia perradialis sp. nov., Euphysora vacuola sp. nov., and Helgicirrha sinuatus sp. nov. Two species are new records for Chinese waters, i.e. Timoides agassizi Bigelow, 1904 and Clytia macrogonia Bouillon, 1984, while 20 species are new records for the Beibu Gulf. The types are deposited in the South China Sea Fisheries Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Fishery Science.
