Ektaphelenchus ibericus n. sp. is described and figured. The new species was isolated from pine packaging wood from Spain that was inspected in Ningbo harbour, China, in 2011. Ektaphelenchus ibericus n. sp. is characterised by lip region without clear constriction, relatively short stylet (11-15 μm) lacking basal knobs, and four lateral lines. The female post-uterine sac is less than one body diam. long, rectum and anus are absent, and the tail is conoid with a sharply pointed terminus. Males are rare and have a conoid tail with a sharply pointed terminus, spicules mitten-shaped, 12.8 μm long (chord) and smoothly curved with a high and bluntly rounded condylus and bluntly pointed rostrum, distal end broadly rounded, and three pairs of ventral caudal papillae present. The separate species status is also supported by molecular phylogenetic analysis based on partial SSU, ITS1/2 and partial LSU sequences.
