The oviduct in the Tylenchida is redefined as the few cells that form the constriction between spermatheca or uterus and ovary. The oviduct in Hexatylus consists of two consecutive discs of four cells, an arrangement formerly not found in the Tylenchida. The oviduct in Deladenus is the only part of the reproductive system that has the same structure in the mycetophagous and in the infective females. Hexatylus has no spermatheca; in the infective female of Deladenus the spermatheca is only filled with the sperm, stored in the uterus, after host pupation has started. The systematic position of both genera is discussed.
