Abstract
    The very special head structure of Desmotimmia mirabilis (Timm, 1961) Freudenhammer, 1975, differs from all other nematodes in showing a hexaradial symmetrical labial region with 6 lips around a hexagonal mouth and bearing but one circlet of only four labial setae: 2 lateral ones, the right subdorsal and the left subventral. The head of D. mirabilis, not clearly defined until now, is composed of 3 consecutively broader rings, each consisting of an anterior non-sclerotized and a posterior sclerotized part, and separated by a narrow interzone from the broader concretized first body ring. Contribution no. 7 on the nematodes from the Great Barrier Reef, collected during the Belgian expedition in 1967.
