This paper presents SEM micrographs of portions of the male, female, and infective-stage juvenile of Steinernema anomali. Included are micrographs of the cephalic and caudal region, spicules, and gubernaculum of the male, the cephalic and vulval region of the female, and the cephalic region of the infective-stage juvenile. Males have six labial and four prominent cephalic papillae and small amphids. There are 11-14 pairs and one single genital papillae; of these, 6-9 pairs are preanal and…

Nematodes of the order rhabditida from andalucía oriental, Spain. The genera nothacrobeles allen &noffsinger, 1971 and zeldia thorne, 1937.
A new species of the genus Nothacrobeles is described from natural areas (a salt lake) in the Southeast Iberian Peninsula and its body length, two rows of cuticular punctations per annulus, labial probolae bifurcate with divergent prongs, and pharyngeal corpus are described.
The establishment of S. arenarium in Bulgaria extends the known area of the species to the southeast and resembles Turano-European, with preferences for riverside alluvial soils.
Nematodos del orden Rhabditida de Andalucía Oriental. El género Eucephalobus Steiner, 1936
Four species of Eucephalobus Steiner collected in soils mainly from natural areas of Andalucia Oriental (SE Iberian Peninsula), yielded four species that are studied in this paper: E. hooperi Marinari-Palmisano, 1967, E. mucronatus (Kozlowska et Roguska-Wasilewska, 1963), and E. oxyuroides (De Man, 1876) Steiner, 1936.
Lateral Movement of the Entomopathogenic Nematode, Steinernema arenaria (Artyukhovsky, 1967) (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) in Sand at Different Temperatures
The lateral movement of the entomopathogenic nematode, Steinernema arenaria (Artyukhovsky et al., 1997) (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) in sand was determined at 15, 20, 25 and 30 °C and the extraction efficiency decreased at all temperatures as time went by.
Paraiotonchium muscadomesticae n. sp. (Tylenchida: lotonchiidae) a Parasite of the House Fly (Musca domestica) in Brazil and a Key to Species of the Genus Paraiotonchium.
Paraiotonchium muscadomesticae n. sp., a parasite of the house fly, Musca domestica L., is described and illustrated from material collected in Brazil. The life cycle of P. muscadomesticae is similar
Identification of entomopathogenic nematodes in the steinernematidae and heterorhabditidae (nemata: rhabditida).
This paper contains taxonomic keys for the identification of species of the genera Steinernema and Heterorhabditis. Morphometrics of certain life stages are presented in data tables so that the

It is conceptualized that there are five ways in which a sexually dimorphic trait, apart from the primary sex traits, can be fixed: sexual selection, fecundity selection, parental role division, differential niche occupation between the sexes, and interference competition.
Biosystematics of entomopathogenic nematodes: current status, protocols and definitions
The main objective is to combine interrelated European expertise to increase the use of entomopathogenic nematodes in integrated pest management and to reduce the need for chemical control.


Head and Cuticular Structures of Some Species in the Family Steinernematidae (Nematoda)
Head and cuticular structures of the Steinernematidae: Steinernema kraussei, Neoaplectana glaseri, N. carpocapsae and N. bibionis were compared by scanning electron microscopy, which shows that Steinernems cannot be separated on the number of head papillae alone.
Neoaplectana glaseri and N. anomali : sibling species or parallelism?
A comparison was made between Neoaplectana glaseri which occurs in North and South America and N. anomali which has been reported only from Central Europe and whether these two species are an example of parallelism or divergence is addressed.
