Free-living soil nematodes, natural conservation area, new record, Vietnam.


The genus Parkellus with a redescription of Parkellus menzeli male is recorded and illustrated for the first time from Vietnam. One male of Parkellus menzeli was collected from Y Ty Commune, Bat Xat natural conservation area, Lao Cai Province, northwest Vietnam; its measurements and features corresponded well with the type population from Crasta im Textal, Switzerland and other populations from Poland.
