Two new species of nematode, described herein as Panagrolaimus tipulae and Rhabditis (Rhabditella) tipulae, were discovered from the cadavers of Tipula paludosa larvae collected from the field in British Columbia. They were cultured successfully on Galleria mellonella L. larvae in the laboratory. Tests on G. mellonella and T. paludosa larvae show that these nematodes are normally saprophytic in the soil. They feed on and multiply in the insect only after it is debilitated or dead.
