Proleptonchus shamimi n. sp. collected from soil around the roots of unidentified grasses in Hissar, Haryana, India, is most closely related to P. weischeri Goseco & Ferris, 1976 but differs mainly in the structure of female posterior sexual branch, position of vulva, shape of tail and size of spicules. Depending on the presence of sperms in it the length of postvulval uterine sac in the new species is greatly variable. The variability of morphological characters used in the taxonomy of Proleptonchus and also the terminology of female reproductive organs in nematodes is discussed. Remarks on the affinities of Leptonchus with Proleptonchus are given.
