Members of seventeen of the twenty nematode genera isolated from the waste treatment piant at Urbana, Illinois, could be reared in the laboratory on bacterial-amoebic or nematode cultures. Morphometrics of laboratory populations of Fictor anchicoprophaga and Paroigolaimella bernensis differed considerably from those of populations collected in nature. Eggs of P. bernensis exhibited holoblastic spiral mode of division during development. Generation time varied from 46-48 hours at 30°C to 90-100 hours at 15° for P. bernensis and from 40-44 hours at 35° to 160-178 hours at 15° for F. anchicoprophaga. Maximum populations were reached in shorter times at higher temperatures for these two species and declined sharply after the maximum was reached. Progeny of five females averaged about 18,000 for each species after 10 days at 20°.
