The life-cycle and feeding habits of P. vigor were observed in vitro. P. vigor was seen to be predatory on a Cephalobus sp. and after piercing the prey with its odontostyle the body contents were ingested. Feeding lasted from 5-17 min. No secretions were seen to pass into the prey. The life cycle was completed in 17-20 days at 24-27° and reproduction was parthenogenetic. Additional morphometric and morphological data on the species are presented. Paractinolaimus dominicus n. sp. from virgin forest in Dominica, is distinctive because of the filiform tail in both sexes in combination with four large onchia and numerous denticles in the stoma. Nygolaimium haguei n. sp. is described from St. Lucia. It differs from N. denticulatum in having a larger tooth, from N. menzeli in having an offset head and larger body size and from N. sharmai by virtue of a shorter tooth and in being monosexual. N. haguei n. sp. appears to be a predator on oligochaetes. A key to the species of Nygolaimium is provided.
