Rickettsia-like micro-organisms are illustrated infecting intracellularly most tissues of adult males of Globodera rostochiensis. They were most common in muscle cells but were also present within sperm cells. The possibility that the paternal line may be involved in the vertical transfer of the micro-organisms to successive generations is discussed. No obvious morphological signs of pathogenicity were seen in male nematodes. Mortality curves for infected and uninfected males were not significantly different at 17°C, with 50% of both groups dying within 7 days and all within 18 days.
