Mylocliscus nanus Thorne, 1939 is redescribed from specimens collected in the State of Bahia, Brazil. It has an axial odontostyle and therefore does not belong with Aetholaimus Williams, 1962 to the Nygolaimidae, subfamily Aetholaiminae. The abrupt esophageal expansion, location of dorsal esophageal gland orifice, and presence of oval organs in the lateral chord indicate that it be- longs to Discolaimidae. Donjlaimus rotundicauda de Man, 1880, currently placed under Carcharo- laimus Thorne… Expand

Status of the genera Paractinolaimus Meyl, 1957, Trachypleurosum Andrassy, 1959 and Trachactinolaimus Andrassy, 1963 ( Nematoda : Actinolaimidae ) with description of Trachypleurosum venezolanum n. sp.
Study of the type specimens of Trachypleurosum confonne (Schneider, 1935) showed that they possess four large onchia in the buccal cavity, Consequently the genus differs from Trachactinolaimus only in the absence of denticles on the cheilostome wall. Expand
