The pathogenicity on wheat of the nematode Anguina tritici, alone and in combination with the bacterium Corynebacterium tritici, was studied. Inoculations with seed-galls or nematode larvae, with or without further addition of the bacterium, resulted in both ear-cockle and bacterial symptoms. Surface-sterilized larvae alone caused only ear-cockle disease; the bacterium alone was not capable of causing disease. By using different surface sterilants on the larvae obtained from dried wheat galls it was shown that Corynebacterium tritici was associated with the nematode larvae as a contaminant. Treatment of the larvae with 0.1 % mercuric chloride for 30 minutes was the most effective axenising method and their development was not affected by this treatment.
