Mumtazium n. gen. belongs in Utahnematinae Siddiqi, 1969 and is characterized by having small amphids with oval apertures; large, asymmetrical spear bearing dorylaimid extension; muscular oesophagus; opisthodelphic gonad and a long, filiform tail. M. mumtazae n. sp. is described from soil in Papyrus Swamp, Namulonge, Uganda, and is the only species in the genus. Laimydorus n. gen. is proposed to accommodate those species of Dorylaimus sensu lato which lack longitudinal ridges over the body. It differs from Mesodorylaimus in having a double spear-guiding ring, longitudinal vulva; elongate, multicellular ovaries; and males having numerous contiguous, supplementary papillae and pre-rectum extending well beyond the region of the supplements.
