New records of nematode parasitism of harvestmen (Opiliones: Arachnida) are reported and a list of all published records of nematode parasitism of these arachnids is presented. Nomenclatorial problems of early mermithid citations are discussed and the possible type of life cycle (indirect) is considered in light of what appears to be a type of behavioural 'immunity' of this host group to many invertebrate parasitic nematodes.

Parasitisme des faucheurs (Opiliones: Arachnida) par les nématodes - Sont reportées de nouvelles observations du parasitisme des faucheurs (Opiliones: Arachnida) par les nématodes et une liste de toutes les observations publiées concernant les nématodes parasites de ces arachnides est donnée. Les problèmes nomenclatoriaux concernant les citations des premiers mermithides sont discutés et le type éventuel de cycle biologique (indirect) est considéré à la lumière de ce qui apparaît être un type ''d'immunité'' comportementale de ce groupe d'hôtes pour de nombreux nématodes parasites d'invertébrés.
