Four new Discolaimus species are described and figured: D. bicorticus n. sp. is distinguished by conspicuous sheaths surrounding the basal enlarged part of the oesophagus and D. levinae n. sp. by the number and arrangement of the supplements; D. krugeri n. sp. differs from D. major Thorne, 1939 in length, number of cells in lateral chords and the presence of males; D. acuticapitus n. sp. is distinguished by the tapered head and the exceptionally wide uterus and oviduct. The male of D. similis Thorne, 1939 is described for the first time. A key to the known Discolaimus species is given.
