Mononchoider potohikus n. sp. (Diplogasteridae) is distinguished from other species of the genus by its short tail (c' ≃ 0.9 in mature specimens); the first stage juveniles are rhabditoid (in that oesophagus lacks distinct tri-radiate valve in median bulb), subsequent stages diplogasteroid; prerectum present; tuboid supplements present in males. Allometric growth coefficients are given for post-embryonic development, based on a culture population. Mesorhabditís littoralis n. sp. (Rhabditidae) females are morphologically similar to those of M labiata (Völk, 1950) but may be distinguished by the possession of oesophageal bulbs of similar size; males have an apparently leptoderan bursa. Panagrolaimus australis n. sp. (Panagrolaimidae) is closest to P. rigidus (Schneider, 1866) but is readily distinguished by the location of phasmids near the cloaca. The type locality for the three species is Himatangi Beach, Manawatu, New Zealand, in dune sand under Ammophila arenaria (L.) Link.
