Three new and two known species of the order Dorylaimida are described. The known species are Cephalodorylaimus papillatus Jairajpuri, 1967 and Chitwoodius seshadrii Baqri, 1980 which are redescribed based on additional materials and the first record of their males. The new species belong one each to the genera Acephalodorylaimus n. gen., Labronema Thorne, 1939 and Dorylaimoides Thorne & Swanger, 1936. Acephalodorylaimus n. gen., with A. attenuatus as type and only species, is proposed for the nematodes which possess a narrow conoid and truncate lip region with slightly raised inner labial papillae, long and narrow odontostyle with obscure aperture, rod-like odontophore, dorylaimoid oesophagus, mono-prodelphic female reproductive system and elongate-conoid tail. It is closely related to the genera Cephalodorylaimus Jairajpuri, 1967 and Malekus Thorne, 1974. Labronema loofi n. sp. is distinct from all species of the genus in having a very narrow odontostyle. However, it comes close to L. chilense Andrássy, 1967 and differs in having a longer and slender body, anteriorly located vulva and smaller tail. Dorylaimoides malabaricus n. sp. is closely related to D. longicaudatus (Imamura, 1931) Thorne & Swanger, 1936 but differs from it in having a smaller body, smaller odontostyle and odontophore, longer oesophagus and tail. Emended diagnosis of the genus Cephalodorylaimus is also provided.
