A preliminary survey of longidorid nematodes was carried out in some regions of Yugoslavia. Four species of Longidorus: L. distinctus, L. euonymus, L. juvenilis and L. macrosoma, and 9 species of Xiphinema: X. brevicolle, X. dentatum, X. diversicaudatum, X. incertum, X. index, X. italiae, X. pachtaicum, X. vuittenezi and Xiphinema sp. were found. L. distinctus, L. euonymus, L. juvenilis and X. incertum are recorded for the first time from Yugoslavia. Morphological characteristics, morphometrics and details of distribution in Yugoslavia are presented for all 13 species.
