Abstract
    Three new free-living marine nematode species are described from a sublittoral station in Firemore Bay, Scotland. Coninckia macrospirifera n.sp. is similar to Coninckia seta (Wieser and Hopper, 1967) from which it can be separated by shorter cephalic setae, the structure of amphids and gubernaculum and the presence of subventral caudal setae. Pterygonema platti n.sp. resembles Pterygonema cambriensis Ward 1973, from which it is distinguished by the number of body annules and presence of tail setae. Wieseria scotlandica n.sp. is similar to Wieseria hispita Vitiello 1972, from which it can be distinguished by the presence of a gubernaculum, length and shape of spicule and the more slender body. Keys to Coninckia and Wieseria species are given. Coninckia and Wieseria have not previously been recorded from Great Britain.
