Soil samples collected in Brazil yielded eleven species of Criconematidae; two of them are described as new species belonging to the genus Criconemella De Grisse & Loof, 1965. Criconemella paralineolata n. sp. is closely related to C. lineolata (Maas et al., 1971) Ebsary, 1982, distinguished by structure of head, shorter stylet, more body annuli, position of the excretory pore (Rex) and by the presence of cuticular punctations and sperm. C. paradenoudeni n. sp. very closely resembles C. denoudeni (De Grisse, 1967) Luc & Raski, 1982, but can be differentiated by slightly shorter stylet, smaller RV, Ran, shorter tail and larger R V an and the position of excretory pore. The other nine species reported are Criconemella ferniae (Luc, 1959) Luc & Raski, 1982; C. parva (Raski, 1952) De Grisse & Loof, 1965; C. onoensis (Luc, 1959) Luc & Raski, 1982; Criconema brasiliense (Raski & Pinochet, 1975) Raski & Luc, 1985; Ogma octangulare (Cobb, 1914) Schuurmans-Stekhoven & Teunissen, 1938; Discocriconemella degrissei Loof & Sharma, 1980; D. limitanea (Luc, 1959) De Grisse & Loof, 1965; Hemicycliophora chilensis Brzeski, 1974; H. thienemanni (Schneider, 1925) Loos, 1948. Species found for the first time since they were described are C. brasiliense, D. degrissei and H. chilensis. An additional population of C. parva males is studied from the Netherlands and males of this species are described for the first time.
