AbstractParatrichodorus caribbensis n. sp. from a primary rain forest in Martinique is described and illustrated. The new species, known from the female only, is characterized by a medium-sized onchiostyle (37-41 m), the far posterior position of the vulva (V=60-64%), comma-shaped vaginal sclerotizations and the absence of caudal pores. Morphometric data is given for Allotrichodorus westindicus (Rodriguez-Montessoro et al., 1978) Rashid et al., 1986 from French Guiana and Monotrichodorus sacchari Baujard and Germani, 1985 from French Guiana and Martinique.
