Rhinodorylaimus kazirangus gen. n., sp. n. is described and illustrated from Kaziranga National Park, Assam, India. The new genus is characterised by the truncate, slightly elevated, lip region offset by a slight depression, strongly sclerotised, massive odontostyle with prominently furcate base, 'double' guiding ring; odontophore simple with slight thickening at its base; amphidelphic female genital system, pore-like vulva, tail long filiform in female and short conoid in males, dorylaimoid spicules and 18-21 contiguous ventromedian supplements. The new genus closely resembles Pachydorylaimus Siddiqi, 1983 but distinctly differs from it in having sexual dimorphism in tail shape, the nature of its odontophore, the characteristic arrangement of the pharyngeal gland nuclei and the number and arrangement of the ventromedian supplements.
