Soil material collected at Camberene, Senegal yielded two of the three known species of the rare genus Bathyodontus: B. cylindricus Fielding, 1950 and B. indicus (Khan, 1972). A male B. cylindricus is described, having a gubernaculum with lateral guiding pieces. The four females found of B. indicus lack a fully developed anterior reproductive branch. Comparison with collection specimens of B. mirus (Andrássy, 1956) allows a new generic character to be identified: presence of a mononchid-like excretory system. Stoma, pharynx and vagina structure are examined in detail; S.E.M. photographs are included and relationships within the genus and with other genera are discussed.
