From a total of 5451 soil samples, twenty-one predatory nematode species were identified representing eleven genera, nine of these species being new records for Great Britain. Of the three species studied in detail in this paper Anatonchus tridentatus was detected in 1664 samples and had a widespread distribution; both Truxonchus dolichurus and Miconchoides studeri were mainly found in the north west of Scotland and were recorded from 108 and 83 samples respectively. An analysis of the biotic and abiotic factors associated with these nematodes indicated that A. tridentatus was more often found at lower altitudes in soils with lower moisture content and higher pH and sand fractions than either of the other two species. These differences may help explain the distinct geographical distribution patterns which distinguish the different species.
