Hoplolaimus indicus Sher is the main species belonging to the genus Hoplolaimus, which is abundant in the Punjab soils. The reproduction is sexual and the mature females lay eggs over a period of 2-3 days and each female deposits 2-4 eggs per day. This nematode passes through four moults (including one in the egg). The first larval stage is completed within the egg and second stage larva emerges from it. In the second stage there is no distinction between the sexes which, however, becomes clear in the third stage larvae. The size of the male larvae is generally smaller than that of the female ones. Immediately after the fourth moult the individuals look like the mature adults. The studies made on the feeding behaviour reveal that this nematode is an 'ectoparasite'.
