I also recently so a electron micrograph with these "virus-like"?
structures attached to especially the rectum and genital pore area of the
nematode.  As to the nematophagus fungi.  A lot of work on this has been
done in Australia, but the main work is currently done in especially
Denmark.  The fungus that the most work is done on is Duddingtonia
flagrans.  A survey to find this fungus has also just started here in South

The following lady is doing her Ph.D. on D.flagrans and at the moment I
think she and her colleagues are doing the most work in this area
(nematophagus fungi)
