We describe a new species of Hedruris, Hedruris wogwogensis n. sp. (Nematoda), from the skink Lampropholis guichenoti in southeastern Australia. This nematode is distinguished from other species of Hedruris infecting reptiles principally by the extent of the rows of longitudinal scale-like bosses on the ventral surface of the male tail, which extend anteriorly for more than half the length of the worm. The species also differs in minor respects from other species of Hedruris, principally in its small size.
