Taxonomic remark Although the publication Handbook of Zoology. Gastrotricha, Cycloneuralia and Gnathifera: 2. Nematoda - Schmidt-Rhaesa, A. (Ed.) 2014 was published later, the chapters of the book were finished in some cases one year - or longer - before. This explains the absence of the genus Dystomanema, Bezerra et.at. 2013. In that publication there are also remarks on the classification of the family Ethmolaimidae and its members, stating:

"Currently, the status of the family Ethmolaimidae and its two subfamilies, the Ethmolaiminae and
Neotonchinae, is generally accepted. De Ley & Blaxter (2002) had raised the Neotonchinae to family level, reestablishing the family Neotonchidae, but we fail to see the reasons why and there are no solid arguments provided by De Ley & Blaxter (2002) to deviate from the classification at subfamily level and above as given in Platt (1982); presumably Platt’s work and/or Lorenzen’s (1994) very brief acknowledgement of Platt’s work (1982) were overlooked. The Ethmolaimidae Filipjev & Stekhoven, 1941 therefore consists of two subfamilies, (1) the Ethmolaiminae Filipjev & Stekhoven, 1941, containing the genera Ethmolaimus de Man, 1880 and Paraethmolaimus Jensen, 1994, and (2) the Neotonchinae Wieser & Hopper, 1966, containing the genera Comesa Gerlach, 1956, Dystomanema, Filitonchoides Jensen, 1985, Filitonchus Platt, 1982, Gomphionchus Platt, 1982, Gomphionema Wieser & Hopper, 1966, Nannolaimus Cobb, 1920, and Neothonchus Cobb, 1933." [details]
