    Diagnostic characters of genera included in the Axonolaimidae (Filipjev, 1918) were determined by scrutiny of original and subsequent descriptions and figures, and by studying specimens of Apodontium Cobb, 1920 and Margonema Cobb, 1920. The study of Apodontium showed the genus to have a unique stoma; and not to be congeneric with Synodontoides as previously proposed. The validity of Parascolaminus Weiser, 1959 is questioned but the genus is retained pending future studies. Family affiliation includes a variety of amphidial shapes (excluding circular), shape of the stoma, number of the post-labial setae, and body size. Genera may also vary as to stomatal armature, number of gonads, inclination of the stomatal walls, length of body and shape of tail. Based on these characteristics, membership in the family is listed.
