Two new species of cyst nematode occurring on grasses in Northern Ireland are described and illustrated. Both, having bifenestrate bullate cysts, belong to the avenae species-group. H. mani n. sp. infests Lolium, Dactylis and Festuca species. It differs from H. avenae Woll., 1924 in that the larvae have deeply concave stylet-knobs and four lines in the lateral field; the more rounded females have shorter stylet-knobs; the males have smaller heads and longer spicules and the cysts are more rounded and possess a distinct underbridge. H. iri n. sp. parasitizes Agrostis sp. and differs from both H. avenae and H. mani in that the larvae possess exceptionally long tails (true-tail and clear-tail averaging 94 μ and 62 μ respectively) ; the cysts are more spheroidal, much lighter in colour, have a thin matt-white subcrystalline layer and a strong underbridge. Unlike H. avenae neither new species attacks cereals.
