The morphology and intraspecific variability of the nematode species Mesodorylaimus bastiani (Bütschli, 1873) Andrássy, 1959 are described. In addition to type specimens, material has been examined from ten localities in south-eastern Spain and three localities in Belgium and The Netherlands. Detailed descriptions, tables of measurements and ratios, and illustrations are included. A revised diagnosis of the species is presented, being characterised by its medium sized body (L = 1.30-1.80 mm), lip region diam. 11-14 μ m and continuous or offset by a weak depression, odontostyle 13.5-16.5 μ m, V = 48-56, pars refringens vaginae with two quite close sclerotisations, female tail elongated and consisting of a conical part followed by a slender portion which tapers to an acute or finely rounded tip (75-100 μ m, c = 14-23, c′ = 3.0-4.0), spicules 39-52 μ m and eight to 11 spaced ventromedian supplements. Previous records of the species are critically discussed. Nématodes de l'ordre des Dorylaimida provenant d'Andalousie orientale, Espagne. Le genre Mesodorylaimus Andrássy, 1959. III. Sur l'identité de M. bastiani (Bütschli, 1873) Andrássy, 1959 – La morphologie et la variabilité intraspécifique chez le nématode Mesodorylaimus bastiani (Bütschli, 1873) Andrássy, 1959 sont décrites. En plus des spécimens types, a été étudié du matériel provenant de dix localités d'Espagne du sud-est et de trois localités de Belgique et des Pays Bas. Sont inclus des descriptions détaillées, des tableaux de mensurations et rapports et des illustrations. Est présentée une diagnose révisée de l'espèce qui se caractérise par: longueur moyenne du corps (L = 1.30-1.80 mm), diamètre de la région labiale de 11-14 μ m, continue ou légèrement séparée du reste du corps par une légère dépression, odontostyle long de 13,5-16,5 μ m, V = 48-56, pars refringens vaginae avec deux sclérotisations assez rapprochées, queue (femelle) allongée, la portion antérieure conique suivie par une portion plus étroite et se terminant en une extrémité pointue ou finement arrondie (75-100 μ m, c = 14-23, c′ = 3,0-4,0), des spicules long de 39-52 μ m et huit à 11 suppléments ventromédians espacés. Les signalisations antérieures de l'espèce sont discutées de manière critique.
