    Over thirty genera of free-living nematodes from seventeen families have been found during a survey of the benthic meiofauna of the Pacific Coast near Vancouver. Their distribution appears to be influenced by the quantity of organic matter and associated bacteria in the sediment. The taxonomy of the Cyatholaimidae will be examined,especially those members of the Cyatholaiminae. The use of light and scanning electron microscope observations of pores and punctuations as taxonomic aids within this family will be discussed.
