Anguina spp. associated with ryegrass toxicity in Western and South Australia are morphologically indistinguishable from Anguina agrostis populations from England, America and New Zealand. Therefore, A. funesta is synonymised with A. agrostis. Measurements of females were more variable than those of males and those from the different populations overlapped, differences between the two Australian populations usually being greatest. The most constant features in adults were the form and structure of the oesophageal regions and reproductive tracts, the size and shape of spicules and gubernacula, and the lengths of the stylets. Infective larvae of populations from Australia, America and New Zealand were similarly indistinguishable with all measurements overlapping. The differences measured were as great between populations from the same hosts as those between populations from different hosts and localities.
