Abstract

The taxonomic position of Dorylaimus robustus de Man, 1876 is fully discussed. It is concluded that D. robustus de Man, 1876 is a synonym of D. stagnalis Dujardin, 1845; also included in this synonymy are D. robustus apud de Man, 1880, apud de Man, 1884 (male, partim) and Labronema robustum (de Man, 1876) Andrassy, 1960. D. robustus apud de Man, 1884 (male, partitn) is a synonym of D. crassus de Man, 1884. D. robustus de Man, 1884 (female) is probably an Aporcelaimus sp., and D. robustus apud de Man, 1921 is a Sectonema species probably un-described. D.J.H.
