During a survey of insect nematodes from Manipur, two new species of nematodes parasitic in the hindgut of mole cricket Gryllotalpa africana were recovered. The two new species are designated as Cameronia triovata sp. nov. and Cameronia manipurensis sp. nov. C. triovata sp. nov. is characterized by presence of three eggs which are fused on lateral sides by ridges and furrows and presence of polar egg filaments while in C. manipurensis sp. nov., the eggs are more than five in one group and attached simply one upon another. Acomparative measurement chart as well as key to the species of Cameronia have been provided. The diagnosis of the genus has been emended in order to accommodate the two new species.
KEY WORDS: Cameronia triovata, C. manipurensis, new species, Thelastomatidae, Manipur, India
