Antarctenchus hooperi n.g., n.sp. is described and figured from various Antarctic mosses. Males and females have attenuated tails and superficially resemble Tylenchus Bastian, 1865, but the possession of the relatively well developed cephalic sclerotisation and the nearly parallel spear protractor muscles prevents the inclusion of this species in Tylenchidae. It does however possess the characters of Dolichodoridae and has a number of features in common with Brachydorus de Guiran & Germani, 1968; but it differs from this and all other genera in Dolichodoridae by the combined possession of an adanal bursa in the male and sub-equatorial vulva with didelphic ovaries in the female. Antarctenchinae n. subfam. is therefore proposed to accommodate A. hooperi.
