  • Morphological variation in the Rhigonematida (Nematoda) is reviewed with the aim of identifying evolutionary trends to construct a reclassification. The order is divided into two superfamilies, namely the Rhigonematoidea and the Ransomnematoidea, and a cladistic representation of the generic relationships is given for each. The Rhigonematoidea includes the Rhigonematidae with Rhigonema, Xustrostoma, Obainia and Glomerinema , and the Ichthyocephalidae with Ichthyocephalus, Paraichthyocephalus… CONTINUE READING
