Abstract

Thalassogenus archaeops n.sp., the second species belonging to the extraordinary enoplid genus of predatory terrestrial nematodes first described by Andrássy (1973), is described from Western Samoa. The importance of the arrangement of the stoma, structure of the cardia and its accompanying glands, and the presence of an eye-spot and six caudal glands is discussed and a new family Thalassogeneridae is proposed for the genus.
