The dauer (JIII) stage of Huntaphelenchoides sp. was found in the reproductive tracts of male and female adults of a solitary digger bee, Anthophora bomboides stanfordiana (Apoidea: Anthophoridae). Huntaphelenchoides sp. caused no damage to the adults or broods of A. bomboides and reproduced on fungi isolated from the cells. The dauer stage of Acrostichus sp. was recovered from the reproductive tracts of adult Halictus ligatus and H. farinosus (Apoidea: Halictidae). Acrostichus sp. was cultured on the bacterium, Escherichia coli. Also, unidentified aphelenchoidid dauer juveniles were found in the reproductive tracts of H. farinosus. These nematodes from the reproductive tracts of these soil dwelling bees are phoretic rather than parasitic.
