Lelenchus leptosoma (De Man, 1880) Meyl, 1961 is reported from southern Chile; Colorado and Alaska, U.S.A.; and is redescribed including SEM photographs. Lelenchus filicaudata sp. n. from southern Chile is described, distinguished by its lateral field with two longitudinal incisures and by its short vulva-anus distance (65.1 [61-72] μm). Lelenchus elegans sp. n. also from southern Chile is described, distinguished by its unusual lateral field of three bands set off by four longitudinal incisures, outer two bands inflated. An emended diagnosis is given for the genus Lelenchus Andrássy, 1954. Ecphyadophoroides indicus Verma, 1972 is reported from southern Chile including clearly defined oesophagus with long, thin procorpus, slender, spindle-shaped median bulb with vaguely defined valvular apparatus; long, very slender isthmus gradually widening to an elongate posterior bulbar region, not overlapping intestine. Ecphyadophora caelata sp. n. from southern Chile is described, distinguished by its lateral field with four longitudinal incisures, its short tail and its beaded cuticle seen only by SEM. Ecphyadophora quadralata Corbett, 1964 is reported from California, U.S.A.
