In a first model the relation between the relative dimensions and the function of a cylindrical pharynx is investigated, taking Ascaris as a starting point. Next, the conditions necessary for a valid comparison between a cylindrical pharynx and a spherical bulb are determined. In a second model the functional possibilities of a spherical bulb are determined and it is concluded that a terminal spherical bulb produces more pressure, but less suction, than a comparable cylindrical pharynx.
