C. elegans habitat: terrestrial and aquatic?

Has any work  been done on habitat description for C. elegans?  I have
classified C. elegans as a terrestrial animal.  Lately, I've seen quite
a bit of testing designed as aquatic tests.  I  use  the determinating
factor for the terrestrial/aquatic animal boundary as "air-breathing".
How does C. elegans (or for that matter all nematodes) fit into my
definition or is there a better determining factor?

Thanks for any pointers, thoughts, suggestions
