Mesodorylaimus bastiani (Bütschli, 1873) is redescribed from topotypes and a neotype is designated. Dorylaimus javanicus Zimmermann, 1898 is considered species inquirenda; D. bastiani of Thorne & Swanger, 1936 is regarded a separate species M. pseudobastiani. Two sexually aberrant specimens of M. bastiani are described: the one a female with male characters on the posterior end, the other a female with double genital apparatus. Dorylaimus agilis of Thorne & Swanger, 1936 is renamed M. cryptosperma ; the real D. agilis of de Man, 1880 is transferred to Eudorylaimus. Three new species are described: M. litoralis from the coastal region of the Netherlands, characterized by short odontostyle, pre-equatorial longitudinal vulva and males with 15-18 supplements; M. aberrans (Switzerland, Yugoslavia and the Netherlands) characterized by aberrant location of the second pair of ventrolateral oesophageal gland nuclei and a strongly developed sphincter in the female gonad, males with 10-15 supplements; and M. derni (Germany), a long-tailed species with longitudinal vulva, males with 11-20 supplements.
