Aporcedorus filicaudatus n. gen., n. sp. and one new species each of the genera Laimydorus Siddiqi, 1969 and Eudorylaimus Andrássy, 1969 are described from India. The new genus Aporcedorus is assigned to the family Aporcelaimidae Heyns, 1965 because its oral opening is dorso-ventrally slit-like and the odontostyle has a large aperture but it differs from all the existing genera of this family in having a long filiform tail. Laimydorus dhanachandi n. sp. has 2.6-3.0 mm long body, truncated lip region with thick cuticle, 21-25 μm long attenuated odontostyle, 40-42 μm long spicules, and 15-16 closely packed but non-contiguous ventromedian supplements. Eudorylaimus himalus n. sp. has 1.1-1.3 mm long body, low and flattened lip region, 21-23 μm long attenuated odontostyle, DN far removed from DO, and short conoid tail with 'saccate bodies'. Males were not found in A. filicaudatus or E. himalus.
