Two species of the genus Chiloplectus are described from Ukraine. Detailed studies by light and scanning electron microscopy were made to differentiate between C. andrassyi, a new senior synonym of Plectus telekii, and C. loricatus. Some previously unknown characters like the shape of the excretory gland duct, the number and position of somatic setae, and the epiptygmata are introduced for this differentiation. C. loricatus is found to be a junior synonym of Plectus cancellatus, which is transferred to Chiloplectus. An emended diagnosis and a revised classification of Chiloplectus are proposed, and a key to the species of the genus is provided. Plectus globilabiatus Kirjanova, 1958 and P.annulatus Maggenti, 1961 are regarded as species inquirendae.

Description de deux espèces de Chiloplectus Andrássy, 1984 (Nematoda: Plectidae) d'Ukraine et une classification nouvelle pour le genre - Deux espèces du genre Chiloplectus sont décrites d'Ukraine. Des études détaillées en microscopie optique et électronique à balayage ont été conduites pour différencier C. andrassyi, un nouveau synonyme majeur de Plectus telekii, et C.loricatus. Quelques caractères jusqu'à présent inconnus comme la forme du canal de la glande excrétrice, le nombre et la position des soies céphaliques et les epiptygmes ont été utilisés pour cette différentiation. C. loricatus est considéré comme un synonyme mineur de Plectus cancellatus, lequel est transféré au genre Chiloplectus. Sont proposées une diagnose amendée et une classification révisée du genre Chiloplectus; une clef des espèces du genre est proposée. Plectus globilabiatus Kirjanova, 1958 et P.annulatus Maggenti, 1961 sont considérés comme species inquirendae.
