Two new genera, Sitadevinema and Abunema, and three new species of Monhystera, M. pseudomacrura, M. stewarti and M. longistoma, are described. Sitadevinema has circular amphids with a central point, a wide mouth opening and a funnel-shaped stoma carrying three teeth. The oesophagus is almost cylindrical without any valvular apparatus. Abunema is characterized by having oval amphids with a central point and a bipartite stoma, the anterior part of the stoma being funnel-shaped and laterally flattened, followed by an expanded posterior part containing three teeth. Both the new genera are included in the subfamily Cobbiinae. M. pseudomacrura is characterized by having six labial setae, a shallow weak stoma, amphids at less than one head width from the anterior end, and a high value of 'b' (6.8-7.2) in the de Manian formula. M. stewarti is characterized by the lip region being offset because of the wide depression in the body wall immediately below this region. Because of the unarmed and bilobed nature of the stoma in M. longistoma, this species seems to connect the genus Monhystera with Sinanema on one hand and with monhystrella on the other.
