Three new species of Dorylaimida, one belonging to the genus Tylencholaimellus and two to the genus Axonchium, are described from natural areas in southeastern Spain. Tylencholaimellus hispanicus sp. n. is easily distinguished from other species of the genus by the truncated lip region with amalgamated lips and especially by the strongly developed cephalic framework. Axonchium giennense sp. n. can be distinguished by a lip region with separated lips, spindle-shaped region lacking valves in the slender part of the pharynx, vagina weakly sclerotized distally, uterus with Z-differentiation and at least three ventromedian supplements within the length of the spicula. A. paravalvulatum sp. n. is characterized by a lip region with separate lips, cuticle clearly striated, spindle-shaped region with valves in the slender part of the pharynx, vagina sclerotized distally, uterus with Z-differentiation and one ventromedian supplement within the length of the spicula. Both species of Axonchium are very similar and close to the species of the subgenera Metaxonchium and Epaxonchium. Both subgenera are synonymized with Metaxonchium the senior and Epaxonchium the junior synonym. As a consequence the new species are considered to belong to the subgenus Metaxonchium.
