A new species of Nygolaimidae, Paravulvus heynsi n. sp., is described, illustrated and discussed. It is characterized by the presence of an ovoid chamber in the median section of the stoma, surrounding the cuticularized guiding sheath. The other main characters are: cardia and cardiac glands weakly developed and rather obscure, tail dorsally convex-conoid with bluntly rounded terminus. The classification of the subfamily Nygolaiminae (sensu lato) is also discussed.
