Redescription of the marine nematode Pandolaimus latilaimus (Allgen, 1929), its synonyms and relationships to the Oncholaimidae. ZooL SCt 5 (6): 257-263, 1976
A redescription of Pandolaimus latilaimus (Allgen, 1929) from the North Sea (Belgian Coast and German Bight) and the 0resund (Denmark) is given. Pandolaimus
Allgen, 1929 is synonymized with Allgenia Strand, 1934, Filipjeviella Allgen, 1935 and Metapelagonema Sergeeva, 1972 Pandolaimus latilaimus is considered synonymous with Allgenia kornoeensis (Allgen, 1929) and Filipjeviella viscosa Allgen, 1935. Pandolaimus is transferred from Linhomoeidae (Monhysterida) to Anoplostomatidae (Enoplida). The genus is most closely related to Anoplostoma Blitschli, 1874 (cephalic sense
organs 6 + 6 + 4, buccal cavity consisting of three plates, oesophageal glands opening behind the buccal cavity and caudal glands in front of the anus) and gives further evidence that the Anoplostomatidae have a
position outside the Oncholaimoidea among the more basic Tripyloidea - Thalassogenus Andrassy, 1973 described as member of Pelagonematidae from freshwater, does not belong to Oncholaimoidea.
