Abstract: Bolbella californica Allgen, 1951 (Enchelidiidae: Nematoda), the
southern California species of the genus, is redescribed. A limited analysis based
on 79 specimens is made of its intraspecific variation. As redescribed, B. californica
may be distinguished from all other species of this genus by the number of esophageal
bulbi, 9 to 10; no previously described species has more than 8 bulbi.
B. californica was collected from 18 locations on the southern California mainland
shelf, in the depth range of 5.5 to 9.1 m. Bottom sediments at these locations
were variable.
