A new nematode, Gracilacus capitatus n. sp., from soil and roots of dead and dying scarlet oak, (Quercus coccinea Muench) is described. It is placed in the genus Gracilacus, Raski 1962, because of the long stylet, the fine cuticular annulation, the paratylenchoid esophagus, and the long well-developed stylet in the larvae. This nematode differs from all described members of the Paratylenchinae by the flattened lip region sharply offset from the body contour in the larvae and females.
