Chromosome changes during gametogenesis in Thelandros alatus and Tachygonetria vivipara, pharyngodonids (Oxyuroidea; Nematoda) from U. acanthinurus from Morocco, indicate that both species are haplodiploid. Meiosis was normal in females of Thelandros alatus. There were 5 bivalents, indicating a diploid number of 10 chromosomes. Most embryos in utero contained 5 chromosomes but 1 was observed with 10. Spermatogonial divisions contained 5 chromosomes; there was no evidence of chromosome pairing nor bivalent formation in males and divisions in the transformation zone of the testis contained 5 chromosomes with fuzzy outlines. There was no evidence of chromosome pairing nor bivalent formation in males of Tachygonetria vivipara. Oviparous and ovoviviparous females were examined. Three bivalents formed indicating a diploid number of 6 chromosomes. Chromosomes were counted in 179 embryos from 79 oviparous females; 128 were diploid (i.e., female) and 51 were haploid (i.e., male). It is suggested that the life cycle of T. vivipara resembles that of Gyrinicola batrachiensis: hosts are colonized by thick-shelled eggs, most of which develop into ovoviviparous females; these females, if not fecundated, produce male parthenogenetically which develop in the same host. After being fecundated (sometimes by way of mother-son matings) the same females produce oviparous female progeny with develop in the same host. Eggs from oviparous females colonize a new host.
