Abstract Four little-known ascaridoid species occurring in crocodilians are discussed. Typhlophorus lamellaris Linstow, 1906 and Hartwichia rousseloti Chabaud & Bain, 1966 are considered to be closely related to Heterocheilus tunicatus Diesing, 1839; Porrocaecum assymmetricum Ortlepp, 1932 is transferred to Trispiculascaris together with T. trispiculascaris Skrjabin, 1916. These three genera are placed in the subfamily Heterocheilinae sensu Sprent (1980) on account of the structure of the oesophago-intestinal junction, the labial pulp and, where known, the male tail. A key to eight genera of Heterocheilinae in crocodilians is provided.
