Cryptaphelenchoides scolyti (Rühm) n. comb. (syn. Ektaphelenchus scolyti Rühm, 1956) is redescribed and an account of its bionomics and occurrence in southern England given. The immature females are transported beneath the elytra of female Scolytus scolytus (a bark beetle attacking Ulmus spp) where they are attached by means of cuticular sheaths situated in the inner anterior angles of the elytra. Females are also found on late instar beetle larvae, pupae and in the frass while the males are found in the frass and on the larvae and pupae, but never on the emerged beetles. Females isolated from the adult beetles bred on agar-plates of a fungus, Ceratocystis ulmi, and produced males and females within five weeks at 20° C. Cryptaphelenchoides riograndensis (Massey) n. comb. (syn. Ektaphelenchus riograndensis Massey, 1964) is proposed.
