Abstract
    Ten species of the nematode genus Dracograllus Allen & Noffsinger, 1977 have been found in marine meiofaunal samples from Madang Province, Papua New Guinea. Seven new species, Dracograllus cornutus sp. n., D. grootaerti sp. n., D. laingensis sp. n., D. minutus sp. n., D. papuensis sp. n., D. pusillus sp. n. and D. spinosus sp. n. are described. Additional information is given on D. demani Allen & Noffsinger, 1977 and D. eira (Inglis, 1968), including data on juvenile stages. The genus Dracotoramonema Allen & Noffsinger, 1977 is considered a synonym of the genus Dracograllus.
