Remark On the basis of the stoma and the copulatory apparatus, Kenyanema is close to the genera in the subfamily Dorylaimopsinae (of the family Comesomatidae). The sub family is composed of genera characterised by a tubular stoma with teeth or without armament. The copulatory apparatus is also typical for the subfamily, strong curved spicules and gubernaculum with a dorsal apophysis. The new genus differs from the rest of the genera however, in that only the cehalic sensilla are distinct; it is also the only described species in Comesomatidae with single branch in the male reproductive system. The genera Kenyanema is placed in the subfamily Dorylaimopsinae until more material (details) are found to place it otherwise. (Muthumbi, et al., 1997) <495>. [details]
