Abstract

The original description of Neolobocriconema cataracticum Andrassy is amplified and supplemented with observations by light microscope and scanning electron microscope. Particular consideration was given to amplifying details of the peculiar head and cuticular structures. The morphometrical descriptive characteristics of a population of N. cataracticum from the State of Rio de Janeiro extend the known range of variability for this species.
