Thornenema wickeni n. sp. has labial cuticularisations, very prominent post-labial cuticularisations, a lip region distinctly narrower than adjacent body and a stylet almost twice as long as lip region is wide. Females of Eudorylaimus rhopalocercus (de Man, 1876) Andrássy, 1959 are described. Tylencholaimellus fenensis n. sp. is closest to T. coronatus Thorne, 1939 but is readily distinguished by the lack of sclerotisation in the labial disc and the prevulval sac being two rather than one body width long. Dorylaimellus globatus n. sp., collected from Wicken Fen, Redgrave Fen, Rothamsted and Orkney Island, is characterised by the presence of anucleate globules at the front of the oesophageal bulb, in both living and dead specimens; it is similar in form to D. virginianus Cobb, 1913 and D. demani Goodey, 1963.
