The occurrence and anatomy of the stage of Tripius sciarae that penetrates larvae and pupae of Bradysia paupera are described. Infective, adult female nematodes produce an adhesive mass about their heads by digesting the front part of the unshed, last, larval cuticle. Adhering to their hosts by this, they use their spears and possibly also enzymes for penetration. The larval cuticle remains attached to the outside of the host by the adhesive mass which seals the penetration hole after entry.
