Head structure of five species in the subfamily Hoplolaiminae (Nematoda)

  • N. Vovlas

Abstract

Several taxonomic contributions in the last ten years have shown intricate details which can be obtained by scanning electron microscope (SEM) photography of surface structures of nematodes. Such morphological characters frequently are useful in supplementing light microscope (LM) observations. In the present article a comparison of the head morphology of five hoplolaimid species is supplemented with additional comments on some taxonomic characters of the head region, which are difficult to interpret by LM because of resolution limits.
