Longidorinae (?).
Body short, robust.  Spear greatly attenuated with long extensions.  Basal enlarged portion of esophagus set off from the slender anterior portion by constriction.
Diagnosis:  Longidorinae (?) with the above characters and general description of the family.  Distinctive because of the robust body and definite constriction setting off the basal enlargement of the esophagus.
Type species:  Longidorella parva

The position of Longidorella is questionable.  The attenuated spear constitutes its principal similarity to Longidorus and Xiphinema but otherwise it appears more closely related to the long speared type of Dorylaimus such as D. microdorus and D. penetrans.
