Abstract
    Three new species of the genus Metepsilonema Steiner are described from the Guadeloupe littoral marine interstitial habitats. M. magdae sp. n. is significantly characterised by the pearl-like ornamentation of the distal edge of the posterior annules and by the shape and sexual dimorphism of the amphids. M. clasingae sp. n. displays a noteworthy cuticular ornamentation with long posterior subdorsal spines, far more pronounced in juveniles. In M. glutinosum sp. n. the ambulatory setae are glued together, even in juveniles. M. bermudae Lorenzen described from Bermuda and reported from Galápagos, has been collected rather frequently in Lesser Antillae.
