Chronogaster tessellata n. sp. is described from soil samples collected around roots of weed plants in the Saloum region, Senegal. It differs from all the species hitherto described by the presence of 40 longitudinal lines over the entire circumference of body giving the cuticle a tessellated appearance. The new species comes close to C. magnifica Andrássy, 1956 (20–24 longitudinal lines) but is less slender (a = 20–29.5 vs 29–44), with a shorter tail length (78–104 vs 114–147 μm), the radial tubules originating at 16.5–17.2 vs 19–21.5 μm posterior to base of mouth cavity. It can be separated from C. alata Gerlach, 1956 (18 longitudinal lines) by its shorter body length (0.63–0.77 vs 1.44 mm), smaller a and c′ ratios (20–29.5 vs 53 and 5.8–7.5 vs 17, respectively), and tail terminus with a mucro bearing four ventrally recurved prongs vs finely rounded in C. alata.
