A NEW SPECIES AND SOME NEW RECORDS OF BASIROTYLEPTUS (NEMATODA: DORYLAIMIDA: (BELONCHINAE) FROM AUSTRALIA AND MALAYSIA BY J. P. FURSTENBERG1) Department of Zoology, University of Port Elizabeth, Port Elizabeth, South Africa A new species Basirotyleptus heynsi obtained from soil around roots of a peach orchard in South Western New South Wales, Australia is described. It is distinguished by a distinct bend in the basal part of the spear, flanged spear extension and by a prominent posterior uterine sac. The males of B. eximius (Siddiqi & Khan, 1964) Siddiqi & Khan, 1965 described by Sauer in 1966 are transferred to B. heynsi n. sp. New records of Basirotyleptus spp. from Australia and Malaysia are given as well as their supplementary descriptions. Basirotyleptus was proposed by Jairajpuri in 1964. In 1965, Siddiqi & Khan synonymised their genus Trichonchium Siddiqi & Khan 1964 with Basirotyleptus. Also Thorne's (1964) Belonenchus and Poncenema were synonymised with Basirotyleptus by Siddiqi ( 1969). In 1965, Siddiqi & Khan proposed the family Basirotyleptidae for the genus Basirotyleptus. In 1976, Andràssy in his book on Evolution as a Basis for the Systematization of Nematodes (p. 226) recognised the family Belonenchidae Thorne, 1964 for Belonenchus and Basirotyleptus. However,
