A new genus Lagostrongylus (Heligmonellidae : Nematoda) is proposed for Heligmonella leporis (SCHULZ, 1931) DURETTE-DESSET, 1971. The synlophe morphology of Lagostrongylus leporis (SCHULZ, 1931) comb. n. should be classified in the subfamily Brevistriatinae. Relationship of Lagostrongylus leporis and related genera belonging to Heligmonellidae are discussed.
