Three dorylaim species are described from islands in the western Indian Ocean. Aporcelaimellus conicaudatus (Altherr, 1953) from Anjouan in the Comoros agrees closely with Williams' (1959) description of this species from Mauritius. Aporcelaimellus macropunctatus sp.n. from Nosi-Komba island (Madagascar) is characterised by conspicuous radial elements in the cuticle, a small peg on the tail terminus, and a heavily sclerotized odontostyle. It is compared with Aporcelaimellus mamillatus (Williams, 1959), A. gerlachi (Meyl, 1956) and A. porcus Thorne, 1974. Longidorella murithi Altherr, 1950 is described from Aldabra Atoll, and compared with Altherr's original description as well as Jairajpuri & Hooper's (1969) description of Indian specimens.
