Morulaimus, n.g., related to Belonolaimus, is described. The lip region has four large submedian lobes bearing six or seven annules, and two small unstriated lateral lobes interrupting the first few annules of the head. Behind these lateral lobes the lip region annules are continuous or interrupted by striation or by an irregular series of platelets. Tail length is from one and a half to three times the anal body diameter. Three species are described: M. arenicolus (type species), 1.2 mm long with conoid tail, stylet about 100 μ, no platelets on the head. M. geniculatus, 1.5 mm long with conoid tail, stylet about 65 μ, platelets on the head. M. sclerus, 1.3 mm long with cylindrical tail, stylet about 90 μ, no platelets on the head, conspicuous sclerotisation of dorsal and ventral sectors of head framework. The new combinations M. hastulatus (Colbran, 1960) and M. whitei (Fisher, 1964) are proposed, and a key to the species is provided.
