|Abstract||Distribution of caudal papillae in adult Romanomermis culicivorax was determined by scanning electron microscopy. Ninety-eight caudal papillae, each containing one pore, were present in males but absent in females. Papillae were arranged in 3 longitudinal rows, one ventral and 2 ventrolateral; the middle ventral row bifurcated anterior to the spicule. The appearance of the papillae was different anterior and posterior to the spicule. The role of the caudal papillae in mediating copulatory behaviour was discussed..|
