Two new Xiphinema spp. from North Portugal are described: X. lusitanicum sp. nov. is very long, has a postmedian vulva, a short, pegged tail, a well-developed Z-organ and no males. X. pachydermum sp. nov. most closely resembles X. pachtaicum but is slightly longer, has a thicker cuticle, more posterior dorsal esophageal gland nucleus and males are common. A 3rd species found is regarded as conspecific with X. opisthohysterum. Additional morphological information is given about X. pachtaicum and X. opisthohysterum.
