The biology of a new species of Aporcelaimellus is described and illustrated. Populations became established on cultures of algae, but penetration and feeding were limited by food-cell size. Hatching occurred 230-250 hours after laying. Separation of membranes was evident at one pole of the egg prior to emergence. The first juvenile stage required 14-18 days for completion; the second stage, 16-23 days; the third stage 26-34 days, and the fourth stage, 25-39 days. Odontostyle replacement occurred during each moult, and odontostyle formation was evident at all but the pre-adult moult. Nematodes which had been feeding on the alga Haematococcus sp. defaecated solid material at the conclusion of each moult.
