Two new species of Oxyonchus are described and O. culcitatus Wieser, 1959, is re-described from the coast of eastern Australia. All three were collected from between the tide-marks from sandy beaches. Oxyonchuslongisetosus n.sp. is distinguished from other species of the genus by the combination of very long cephalic setae, low arched mandibles and stout ` comma-shaped' spicules. Oxyonchus evelynaen.sp. also possesses long cephalic setae and `comma-shaped' spicules but has higher rectangular… Expand
New species of the genus Oxyonchus (Enoplida: Thoracostomopsidae) from the Far Eastern Seas
TLDR
Three species of Oxyonchus (Thoracostomopsidae: Nematoda) are described and illustrated with the aid of light microscopy and laser-scanning microscopy pictures from sediments of Far Eastern Seas. Expand
A new species of Trileptium (Nematoda, Thoracostomopsidae) from a sandy beach in southeastern Australia, with a key to species and observations on geographical distribution
TLDR
Thoracostomopsidae are common predatory marine nematodes found in littoral and sub‐littoral sands and have a very wide geographical distribution, but other species appear to be restricted to one sea or ocean. Expand

Observations on the Feeding Ecology of Estuarine Nematodes
TLDR
The predatory strategy of Calyptronema maxweberi, as described in this paper, suggests the use of a paralysing or lethal secretion in prey capture, which, to the authors' knowledge, is the first report for aquatic nematodes. Expand
The free-living nematodes of a temperate, high energy, sandy beach: faunal composition and variation over space and time
Free-living marine nematodes were sampled extensively over a 2-year period on a long sandy beach exposed to high-energy ocean swells in southeastern Australia. Samples were taken in summer and winterExpand
Ratios and indexes in nematode taxonomy
TLDR
It is shown that it is always possible to use an index instead of an ordered qualitative character for describing a shape or a position, as long as the index is biologically related to the characteristic being described. Expand
