New observations on three similar species of the genus Enchodelus, namely E. groenlandicus, E. macrodorus and E. saxifragae, are provided on the basis of material collected in the southern Iberian Peninsula. Enchodelus groenlandicus is redescribed, this being the first record of the species after its original description 80 years ago. An emended diagnosis is given for E. macrodorus in addition to a compendium and analysis of its previous records. Enchodelus saxifragae, certainly the most widely distributed species in the studied area, is also redescribed. Measurements, illustrations, including LM and SEM, and remarks on the identity of the three species, are presented. Together with E. distinctus and E. microdoroides, the three species form a species group characterised by a long odontostyle (>35 μm), flanged odontophore, tripartite uterus and short, rounded tail. These five species are compared in detail and a key to their identification provided.
