Additional detailed morphological information on features of the marine nematode Epsilonema pustulatum is presented for the first time. Lip structure, amphideal fovea, cuticular appendages (setae, spines, anal and copulatory thorns), annules and vacuoles, body inversion, setae ambulatoriae region, vulva, cloaca/anus and tail end are SEM studied and illustrated. Additionally, E. pustulatum (from Spain, Italy and Lebanon) is compared with other former Bathyepsilonema species. E. anulosum (Verschelde & Vincx, 1992) is proposed as a junior synonym of E. pustulatum.

Observations au microscope électronique à balayage sur le nématode marin côtier Epsilonema pustulatum (Gerlach, 1952) Lorenzen, 1973 (Nematoda: Epsilonematidae) - Des données morphologiques nouvelles concernant le nématode marin Epsilonema pustulatum sont présentées pour la première fois. Sont étudiés en microscopie électronique à balayage et illustrés des caractères tels que la structure labiale, les fovea amphidiales, les appendices cuticulaires (sétes, épines du corps, épines anales et copulatoires), anneaux et vacuoles, courbure du corps, région des sétes ambulatoires, vulve, cloaque/anus et extrémité de la queue. De plus, E. pustulatum (provenant d'Espagne, Italie et Liban) est comparé avec d'autres espèces auparavant placées dans le genre Bathyepsilonema. E. anulosum (Verschelde & Vincx, 1992) est proposé comme synonyme mineur d'E. pustulatum.
