    The use of dimethyl sulfoxide followed by Os04 as a fixation technique has made it possible to study the morphology of Xiphinema index at a higher resolution level than before. The observations reported here concern the structure of the cuticle, the epidermis, the nervous system, the somatic musculature, the connective tissue and the feeding apparatus. These observations are discussed and related to their possible function in virus transmission by this nematode.
