Abstract
    Electron microscopic observations on the demanian system of female Metoncholaimus denticaudatus Schuurmans Stekhoven and Adam, 1931 from the Sluice Dock of Ostend lead to following conclusions: 1) there is no ductus uterinus; 2) the system is not a seminal receptacle; 3) it should be interpreted as an elaborate cascade system of glands, the secretion of which serves some important purpose related to reproduction.
