Abstract

The present paper deals with the nematode species collected from a small deep fresh-water pool on a coral island in the Solomon Islands. 50% of the specimens recorded belong to terrestrial forms (4 species), 45% were marine forms (6 species) and only 5% belonged to fresh-water (4 species). Three species are described as new to science.
