Time of sampling of populations of grass-infesting Anguina spp. is probably the cause of greatest variability in body measurements of adults. Two-fold differences in length of males and females of A. funesta and in widths of males were obtained; three-fold differences in widths of females were recorded. Other characters such as tail length, length of post-vulval sac and position of the vulva were less variable as the nematodes grew. Development of colonies of the associated bacterium, Corynebacterium sp. inhibited development of adults shortly after the fourth moult.
