Abstract
    Microlaimus africanensis n. sp. is described from harbour sand taken just inside the Dom Pedro Breakwater, Port Elizabeth, Molgolaimus typicus n. sp. is recorded from brown algae sampled subtidally from a rocky shore off Port Elizabeth. Microlaimus africanensi n. sp. is characterised by its length and thinness. Molgolaimus typicus n. sp. resembles M. minutus, but can be differentiated by the presence of a prominent ventral gland and ventral pore, as well as the absence of a gubernaculum.
