Two new species of Longidoridae are described from poorly growing date palms in Saudi Arabia. Longidorus orientalis n. sp., found in Dirab and Riyadh, (and also in soil around roots of grapevine in several localities in Iraq) is characterized by round, continuous lip region, bilobed amphids and hemispherical female tail, body length of 4-6 mm and odontostyle length of 96-113 μm. L. taniwha apud About-Eid, 1970 from Egypt is possibly identical with it. Xiphinema phoenicis n. sp. closely resembles X. diversicaudatum (Micoletzky, 1927), but is distinctly more slender ("a" being 83-124 in females, 92-126 in males; in diversicaudatum 67-84 in females, 66-92 in males), the vulva is more posterior (45-51 vs 38-46), the odontophore is shorter relative to the odontostyle, and the females possess a well developed, more compact Z-organ. X. phoenicis was found only at Riyadh, together with numerous specimens of Longidorus africanus Merny, 1966, and a few L. siddiqii Aboul-Eid, 1970 and Xiphinema italiae Meyl, 1953.
