The development and life history of Nacobbus serendipiticus was studied from the egg to maturity and the early stages recorded by cinematography. There are four moults, the first in the egg. The four larval stages are described and their behaviour in relation to tomato roots. The sex of larvae can be determined at the end of the third stage by the development of the gonads. Damage to the host roots caused by the larvae feeding and invading is followed by necrosis of cortical cells. Galls occur only in association with adult females; they contain a spindle-shaped mass of small cells in which starch grains were found. Of 25 plant species tested for susceptibility, mature females were recovered from eight. The nematodes can survive the winter in England but are probably not indigenous.
