Xiphinema papuanum n. sp. is described from Papua New Guinea. It is compared with X. mammillatum S. Stekhoven & Teunissen, 1938 which it closely resembles but from which it can be differentiated by tail length, vulva position, number of ventral and lateral body pores, position of the most anterior dorsal and ventral body pores, thickness of the cuticle on dorsal side of tail and length of the pars dilatata uteri in mature females. The new species is also compared with X. basilgoodeyi Coomans, 1965 from which it can be distinguished, among other things, by the differently shaped and shorter tail, larger number of ventral and lateral body pores, and differences in tail shape in juvenile stages. A female and the four juvenile stages of X guirani apud Lamberti & Bleve-Zacheo, 1979 are described and figured, also from Papua New Guinea, and a male of X. ensiculiferum (Cobb, 1893) is described from the Solomon Islands.
