Two new species of free-living marine nematodes, Daptonema longiapophysis sp. nov. and Cobbia sinica sp. nov. from the Yellow Sea, China are described and illustrated. Daptonema longiapophysis sp. nov. is characterized by spicules with a projection on the ventral and dorsal side respectively and the length of the gubernacular apophysis longer than the length of spicules. Cobbia sinica sp. nov. is characterized by one big dorsal tooth, long conico-cylindrical tail and gubernaculum with a small dorsal apophysis.
