Diplolaimella dievengatensis sp. n. was sampled from the Dievengat, a thalassic water pond situated near Knokke in North Western Belgium. The different juvenile and adult stages are described in detail. The male of D. dievengatensis is characterised by the length of the spicules ( > 25 μm), the prominence of the gubernacular apophyses and the presence and position of five pairs of equal and prominent post-cloacal genital papillae. The female is characterised by the sclerotizations of the… 
Free-living marine nematodes of shrimp culture ponds in Thailand. I. New species of the genera Diplolaimella and Thalassomonhystera (Monhysteridae) and Theristus (Xyalidae)
Three new species belonging to the genera Diplolaimella and Thalassomonhystera of the family Monhysteridae and Theristus of the family Xyalidae are described from shrimp culture ponds near mangrove
The ultrastructure of the buccal cavity of the monhysterid nematodes Geomonhystera disjuncta and Diplolaimella dievengatensis
The ultrastructure of the buccal cavity of two monhysterid nematodes, Geomonhystera disjuncta and Diplolaimella dievengatensis, is elucidated.
Position of pharyngeal gland outlets in monhysteridae (nemata).
It is concluded that at least three, and possibly five, nuclei are in the basal part of the pharynx and may well be the basic plan in the Class Chromadorea (including Secernentia as a subclass).
Novel nematode species in living stromatolites in the Andean Puna
This study represents the first report related to the presence of novel nematodes in such peculiar stromatolites from Socompa lake at 3570 meters above sea level and suggests they are novel species and probably belong to a new genus.
The Life Cycle of the Bacterial-Feeding Nematode Diplolaimella stagnosa and Its Population Growth in Response to Temperature and Food Availability
Based on its life strategy and the influence of food availability and temperature on population growth, D. stagnosa was allocated to group c-p 2, suggesting its potential use as a model organism in toxicological studies.
