The type species Scleroac- tinolaimus punctatus n. gen., n. sp. is described and illustrated. Keywords: Dorylaimida, Actinolaimidae, Scleroactinolaimus punctatus n. gen., n. sp. A soil sample collected from Cherapunji, Meghalaya, India, yielded speci- mens of an interesting actinolaim nematode which upon detailed study was found to represent a new genus. It has been designated as Scleroactinolaimus punctatus n. gen., n. sp. MATERIALS AND METHODS Specimens for light microscopy were killed and fixed in hot 4% formal- dehyde, dehydrated by the slow method and mounted in glycerine. Measure- ments were made with an ocular micrometer. For SEM, formaldehyde fixed specimens were washed in buffer, post-fixed in osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in an alcohol series and critical
