Three species of nematodes from the nematofauna found in Spanish fir woodlands (pinsapo forests) are described: Prodesmodora zullinii n. sp., Prodesmodora nigra n. sp. and Chiloplectus loricatus Andrássy, 1985. P. zullinii n. sp. is a relatively small species of this genus, has a variable body length (0.25-0.41 mm), only two denticles on the stoma wall, amphid diam. 25-40% of the corresponding body diam., located at 12.1± 1.2 μm of the anterior end, vulva-anus distance 2-2.3 times the tail length, vaginal wall lightly sclerotised and tail tip pointed. P.nigra n. sp., also a relatively small species (0.53-0.55 mm), is characterised by three denticles on the stoma wall, amphid diam. 30-34% of the corresponding body diam. situated at 17.6 ± 0.9 μm of the anterior end, and vulva-anus distance 2.7-2.9 times the tail length, vaginal sclerotisation wall prominent and tail tip pointed. Two additional differential characters for C. loricatus are the seven to ten rows of denticles of the pharynx valve and two small projections on both sides of the spinneret base. Data are presented on some ecological features of the habitat where these three species were found, as well as taxonomic data comparing the different species of Prodesmodora smaller than 0.55 mm.
