Criconema zantene n. sp., found in the rhizosphere of a Podocarpus sp. tree, is described and illustrated. Females are characterised by having 46-56 body annuli covered with tile-like scales, stylet 101-122 μm long, one lip annulus with a greater diameter than first body annulus, distinct submedian lobes, tooth-like lobes on posterior body annuli with a double row of lobes on first annulus directly posterior to vulva, a sigmoid vagina and an overhanging anterior vulval lip. Second, third and fourth stage juveniles with varying numbers of longitudinal rows of filamented scales on cuticle. Criconema princeps (Andrássy, 1962) Raski & Luc, 1985, Mesocriconema dherdei (De Grisse, 1967) Loof & De Grisse, 1989 and Paratylenchus straeleni (De Coninck, 1931) Oostenbrink, 1960 are reported from South Africa for the first time. These species are briefly discussed, illustrated and morphometrics given. Additional data is given for C. pauciannulatum Van den Berg, 1992.
