Meldola Blue and Nile Blue A were generally superior to and more dependable than Phloxine B, New Blue R and, in some respects better than Chrysoidin as stains for distinguishing dead from living nematodes regardless of whether the dead nematodes had been killed by lethal amounts of heat, cold, dryness or by certain nematicides. These stains were effective on specimens of Dorylaim us, Helicotylenchus, Mononchus, Panagrolaimus, Pratylenchus, Rhabditis, Tylenchorhynchus and Xiphinema species.
