The formation of the anterior feeding apparatus during moulting was studied in Labronema vulvapapillatum and Aporcelaimellus obscurus. A new terminology is introduced for the sectors in the nematode pharynx: perradial (previously marginal), adradial and interradial (both previously radial). The form and structure of the cuticle of the odontophore and platelets depends upon the position of the secretory cells. In contrast to the body wall, the pharyngeal muscles (perradial and adradial) differentiate into secretory cells during moulting and are therefore considered as myoepithelial cells. The odontostyle is formed by a single cell. Its form is determined by a vacuole, into which the stylet material is secreted and where it condenses in a complicated way. The shape of the vacuole is maintained by longitudinal fibres which form a kind of cytoskeleton. Migration of the replacement odontostyle is discussed.
