Myctolaimus platypi sp. n. is described and figured. The third-stage dauer juveniles of M. platypi sp. n. were isolated from the underside of the elytra of the oak borer, Platypus quercivorus, and were reared on an Asparagine-Mannitol (A-M) agar. Specimens of adult nematodes for description and measurements were collected from a 2-week-old culture on A-M agar. The new species is characterised by having the stoma shorter than the pro-metacorpus, shape of the rounded-cylindroid pro-metacorpus, the obvious longitudinal striations on the cuticle, and thick cuticle. The male and female of the new species have a body length of ca 700-1000 μm, a value of ca 20, b value of ca 6, and c value of ca 10. Males of the new species have strongly arcuate, C-shaped spicules 71 (62-80) μm long, 29 (25-35) μm long gubernaculum with pointed distal end, and nine pairs of caudal papillae. There is no bursa. Ceratosolenus is proposed as a junior synonym of Myctolaimus and the following new combinations are also proposed: M. anoplophorae comb. n.; M. inevectus comb. n.; and M. racemosa comb. n.
