The type species Axonchium amplicolle Cobb, 1920 is redescribed together with A. bulbosum Williams, 1958; A. elegans Jairajpuri, 1964; A. metobtusicaudatum (Schuurmans Stekhoven & Teunissen, 1938) Nair & Coomans, 1972; A. nitidum Jairajpuri, 1964; A. sabulum (Yeates, 1967) Coomans & Yeates, 1969; A. saccatum Jairajpuri, 1964. Four new species, all from South Africa, are added. A. heynsi n. sp. is 2.1-2.82 mm long and characterized by the narrow tubular part of the uterus, more or less developed ovejector and stout, L-shaped spicules. A. transkeiense n. sp. is 1.83-2.14 mm long and comes nearest to A. heynsi and A. metobtusicaudatum but differs in the structure of the vagina and shape of spicules. A. latespiculatum n. sp. is 1.9-2.2 mm long and characterized by the comparatively long, cylindroid tail, the broad spicules and lateral guiding pieces and the presence of only four medioventral supplements. A. cingulatum n. sp. is 2.27-2.56 mm long and characterized by a sphincter-like structure at the junction between intestine and prerectum.
