Several specimens were taken. Among the females. very pre-

literature proves that these apparently aberrant specimens agree with

Butschli's A. limalis. In his paper dealing with the anatomy of

Nematodes from the North-Sea de Man points out the named

difference between the two forms without venturing to settle the

question of the identity of .4. pellucida and Å. limalis. In 1916

Steiner is of opinion that Butschli's Å. limalis is a mere

variety of .4. pellucida. I must confess that 1 do not agree per-

fectly with Stein er in this respect. in my material is found a

number of wellmarked long-tailed specimens (PI. II, fig. 1), but also

typical short-tailed specimens are found which seem to agree well with

de Man's fig. 8, Taf. IX. Finally are found some in which the length
