    A new species of dracunculoid nematode, Mexiconema africanum sp. n. (Daniconematidae), is described from the abdominal cavity and the intestine (rarely also the gall-bladder) of the catfish Auchenoglanis occidentalis (Valenciennes) (Claroteidae, Siluriformes) from Lake Turkana, Kenya. The new species differs from two other congeners mainly in the absence of two large cell nuclei in the glandular oesophagus, presence of well-developed lateral cephalic elevations, more numerous (14) cephalic papillae, and a much longer body of the gravid female (18-22 mm); from M. cichlasomae Moravec, Vidal and Salgado-Maldonado, 1992 also in less numerous (2) caudal processes and a different arrangement of genital papillae in the male. Mexiconema africanum is the first repreative of the dracunculoid family Daniconematidae described from Africa.
