Ten species of Tylenchidae and three species of Boleodoridae were examined in SEM and divided into three groups. The first one consists of Tylenchus davainei, Filenchus thornei, Irantylenchus vicinus, Tylenchus ditissimus and Lelenchus leptosoma. These are characterised by small pits near oral opening, no offset disc, four incisures in the lateral field (except L. leptosoma), wide vulva, and presence of hypoptygmata. Ottolenchus facultativus is similar to these species. The second group includes Aglenchus agricola, Coslenchus costatus and C. alacinatus. The oral opening in these is also surrounded by small pits which, together with amphidial apertures, are located on an offset disc; lateral field formed by distinct ridges, vulva small and located in a vulval cavity, hypoptygmata present. Cephalenchus emarginatus is close to this group. The third group includes Basiria gracilis, Neopsilenchus magnidens and Boleodorus thylactus. In these the oral opening is surrounded by six larger papillae, a second circle of cephalic sensory organs is formed by four sublateral papillae, amphids laterally on the head to form an open V, lateral field and vulva as in the first group. The diagnosis of Boleodoridae is emended, as well as those of Boleodorinae (syn. Basiriinae) and Psilenchinae (syn. Antarctenchinae). Classification of Boleodoridae is outlined and a key to the genera provided.
