The nematode, A. avenae, does not attach itself by lip suction for feeding. Stylet action is induced when the body of the nematode is firmly braced and able to exert pressure of the lips against a resistant surface; pressure against glass, the cuticles of other nematodes or against hyphal walls of the fungus Thanatephorus cucumeris all evoked the same stylet response, and in the case of hyphae resulted in successful penetration. Feeding by A. avenae on fungal hyphae appears to consist in a simple removal of cell contents, with no injection of oesophageal secretions into the host cells.
