The adult stages of Parasitaphelenchus oldhaini are described and illustrated for the first time. The life cycle and biology of the parasite are discussed, together with an assessment of its effect on the host bark beetles Scolytus scolytus and S. multistriatus. The J3 is the infective and moults to the J4 inside the beetle larvae. The J4 is found in the haemocoel of the beetle larvae, pupae and adults and for a short time in the gut and frass. The other stages are all found in the frass. Adult nematodes feed on fungal hyphae.
