Four new and four known species of the subfamily Lordellonematinae are described. Lordellonema paraporosum sp. n. has a 0.61-0.64 mm long body, cuticle distinctly striated, lateral body pores indistinct, 20-23 ventral body pores distributed throughout body length, 2-3 dorsal body pores located anterior to nerve ring, lip region distinctly offset, angular, odontostyle 14-15 μm long, cardia with three glands and short conoid tail. Lordellonema macrodorum sp. n. has a 1.1-1.2 mm long body, inner layer of cuticle with distinct striations and separated from outer layer, body pores indistinct, lip region broad, offset by deep constriction, odontostyle 22-23 μm long, short conoid cardia with a thin disc, transverse vulva, amphidelphic genital system and short conoid tail. Sicorinema bashirjanae sp. n. has a 1.21-1.38 mm long, slender, body, distinctly striated cuticle, 8-9 μm long odontostyle, pore-like vulva, mono-opisthodelphic female genital system with short anterior uterine sac, and short conoid, minutely rounded, tail. Moshajia ladakhiensis sp. n. has a 1.5-1.8 mm long body, lip region offset by depression, 12.5-13.5 μm long odontostyle, amphidelphic genital system and short, conoid, bluntly rounded, tail. Poronemella is considered a junior synonym of Lordellonema and P. porifer and P. amini are transferred as L. porifer comb. n. and L. amini comb. n. In the nature of its outer and inner layer of cuticle, odontostyle and pharynx, Latocephalus lunulatus fits better under the genus Sicorinema rather than Latocephalus and is transferred herein as S. lunulatum comb. n. Lordellonema amini comb. n., and M. cultristyla and M. idiophora are reported and redescribed for the first time since their original descriptions. Poronemella shamimi is transferred to Lordellonema as L. shamimi comb. n. and P. divulgata is transferred to Crassolabium as C. divulgata comb. n. Diagnoses of all three genera are given together with keys to species.
