Six hundred and forty-eight soil samples were collected from 108 sites in a 75,000 km2 area in the central highlands of South Australia. Twenty-four genera of plant nematodes, of which 14 were studied further, were recovered and individuals counted. Spatial distribution of the nematodes in the area was influenced largely by the distribution of their host plants which was in turn influenced by rainfall. Particular nematode genera differed in their distribution; Xiphinema was associated with the grasslands and Sheoak-bluebush associations of the arid north, Tylodorus was most abundant in the forests in the south, Paralongidorus, Helicotylenchus, Radopholus and Pratylenchus occurred widely suggesting that they have many hosts. Tylodorus and Xiphinema monohysterum are worth intensive study because of their restricted distribution and easy identification. No new genera but many undescribed species were found. There were no taxonomic curiosities.
