    Diplolaimella dievengatensis sp. n. was sampled from the Dievengat, a thalassic water pond situated near Knokke in North Western Belgium. The different juvenile and adult stages are described in detail. The male of D. dievengatensis is characterised by the length of the spicules ( > 25 μm), the prominence of the gubernacular apophyses and the presence and position of five pairs of equal and prominent post-cloacal genital papillae. The female is characterised by the sclerotizations of the vaginal cuticle and the absence of a postvulval uterine sac.
