Description (from Thorne, 1929)
Characters probably nearest to Dorylaimus obtusicaudatus
Bastian but with these differences: Esophagus shorter. Ovaries
about twice as long; eggs smaller and present in the uterus in greater
numbers. Terminus of female tail variably elongated. Male preanal
supplements larger but only 24-30 in number compared to about 40 in obtusicaudatus.
Spicula conspicuously long and rather slender. Males numerous while
in obtusicaudatus they are rare.
Posterior half of esophagus enlarged. Front
ovary on the left, the rear on the right side of the body. Eggs small,
only two-thirds as long as the vulva body diameter and twice as long as
wide. As many as twelve may occur in the body at one time.
Prerectum about equal in length to rectum.
