Seven Hemicycliophora spp. collected by Dr. D. Sturhan, Münster, contained six undescribed species. H. lutosoides n. sp. is close to H. lutosa Loof & Heyns, 1969, from which it differs in being unisexual, and to H. poranga Monteiro & Lordello, 1978, from which it differs by head structure and absence of ornamentation in the lateral field. H. iranica n. sp. is close to H. epicharoides Loof, 1968, but differs by having more annules and in structure of lip region and lateral field. H. spinituberculata n. sp. is close to H. lutosa and H. lutosoides; it is bisexual and the males bear a mucro on the posterior cloacal lip. H. sculpturata n. sp. resembles H. typica de Man, 1921 and H. nyanzae Wolff Schoemaker, 1968; it differs from both in its longer body, more annules and structure of lip region. From H. nortoni Brzeski, 1974 it differs by shorter spear, spermatheca filled with sperm, and more pronounced cuticular sculpture. H. sturhani n. sp. resembles H. nortoni, but differs chiefly by the presence of ovate markings in the lateral field. H. megalodiscus n. sp. is bisexual; both males and females have a strongly protruding labial disc. The seventh species found was H. conida Thorne, 1955.
