Two new Desmodoridae species are described: Croconema otti sp. n. and Pseudochromadora incubans sp. n. The cuticular ornamentation and somatic setae of C. otti sp. n. display features previously unknown within the genus. In P. incubans sp. n. the position of the cephalic setae and latero-subdorsal amphids on the cephalic capsule, which is divided into two sections, are characteristic. Brood protection occurs in both species. In C. otti sp. n. a single line of similar embryos is attached laterally on the left side of the body. In P. incubans
