The process of spear-formation in Xiphinema could be traced by studying larvae of different stages fixed while moulting. It was found that growth of the new odontostyl started during the early stages of moulting and ended before the old cuticle was entirely shed. The phenomena described below are supposed not to be restricted to the species involved and even not to the genus Xiphinema, e.g. the observations of Siddiqi (1962). Special reference is made to the terminology of different parts of the spear.
