Juveniles of six Punctodera punctata populations were studied, including four from Germany, one from the Netherlands and one from England. Multivariate analysis of variance showed consistent differences in body and stylet length, distance of the genital primordium and of the valve of the median bulb from the anterior end, mid-body width and the width of the stylet knobs. These differences indicate that two morphologically different forms are present. It is speculated that they are different species.
