Two new species of Tylenchorhynchus Cobb, 1913 from sugar cane fields in Sudan, T. sudanensis and T. elamini are described and illustrated. T. sudanensis is characterized by rather medium body size female, L= 0.692 mm long with rather medium stylet length of 20 - 23 ${\mu}m$. While T. elamini is characterized by medium body size female, L = 0.61 - 0.78 mm long, medium stylet length of 16 - 19 ${\mu}m$. Different characters of two new species are discussed. In addition, vital measurements and brief descriptions of two species are presented.
