Tenuidraconema koreensis, a new species of free‐living marine nematodes, collected from the subtidal coarse sediments and various invertebrates of Namae, is described. The new species differs from T. fiersi Decraemer, 1989, the only other species in the genus, by having the combination of the following characters: the position of twelve cephalic adhesion tubes in both sexes (anterior six cephalic adhesion tubes inserted on the rostrum and posterior six inserted on the body annules), and the number of posterior sublateral adhesion tubes (12 in male and 13 in female) and posterior subventral adhesion tubes (15 in male and 19 in female). This paper contains the description of the new species with illustrations and scanning electron microscope (SEM) photomicrographs. This is the first discovery of the monotypic genus Tenuidraconema outside the type locality.
