The effects of nutrients on the dimensions and the sex of Aphelenchoides sacchari Hooper, A. rutgersi Hooper & Myers, and A. dactylocercus Hooper, were studied. Each species was reared on the fungus, Pyrenochaeta terrestris. Minor variations in body length, tail length, tail area and the length/breadth ratio were observed but the basic morphological characters of none of the species were significantly changed. The ratio of body length to tail length was consistently significantly different in the three Aphelenchoides species studied. A. rutgersi Hooper & Myers, 1971 appears to be a valid species: its tail length and the ratio of its length to tail length are intermediate between those of A. sacchari and A. dactylocercus. A. dactylocercus has the greatest tail length and the smallest ratio of body length to tail length. Males and intersexes were observed in Aphelenchoides sacchari and Aphelenchoides rutgersi, but there was no evidence of either in A. dactylocercus.
