The three known Geocenamus species, G. tenuidens Thorne & Malek, 1968, G. arcticus (Mulvey, 1969) and G. longus (Wu, 1969), are recorded from Germany and additional information on their morphology, distribution and ecology given. Merlinius polonicus (Szczygieł, 1970) is synonymized with G. tenuidens. The five German populations of this species differ from both type populations by greater body, spear, spicula and gubernaculum length. A single population of G. arcticus was found. The only reliable character separating this species from G. tenuidens appears to be the smooth tail tip. G. longus, which was recovered at 16 places from forest and non-agricultural soils, possesses all the features which characterize the Merlinius tessellatus group and is designated M. longus (Wu, 1969) comb. nov.
