The fine structure of the anterior body region of Aporcelaimellus is described. The body wall ultrastructure is similar to that of Longidoridae and the feeding apparatus is comparable, but more primitive. The structure of the guiding apparatus and anterior oesophagus is given in detail, with the protractor system and two sets of retractors. The nervous system is outlined, with special attention to papillae and body pores. It is concluded that the stomodeal cuticle, and epidermis are continuous. The structure of the stomodaeum can be described more appropriately by Inglis' (1966) terminology than by the usual rhabditoid one. The nature of the "hydrostatic tissue" is discussed.
