The life history of the free-living marine nematode Chromadorita tenuis was studied in the laboratory at 2°C, 10°C and 18°C in agar plates based on 6°/oo S seawater. The duration of all developmental stages was temperature-dependent and increased with decreasing temperature; fecundity decreased with decreasing temperature. Juveniles of C. tenuis as well as three other chromadorids studied have a replacement tooth behind the dorsal tooth. The cuticularized linings of the buccal cavity and the oesophagus are renewed during the moulting process; the old lining is passed into the intestine, whereas the body cuticle is shed into the medium. The number of generations produced annually by C. tenuis is estimated at 8-10 under temperature and salinity conditions prevailing in the Baltic Sea.
