    Tridentulus n. gen. is described from Isla Floreana, the Galápagos and its type and only species Tridentulus floreanae (Eyualem & Coomans, 1995) n. comb. redescribed. Tridentulus n. gen., comes close to the genera Monhystera Bastian, 1865, Eumonhystera Andrássy, 1981 and Sinanema Andrássy, 1960, but differs from all of them in a combination of two characteristics i.e. in having three small denticles situated posteriorly at the base of the stoma and an outstretched female reproductive system. The taxonomic position of the genus Sinanema is also questioned.
