Abstract The cereal-root eelworm has been known alternatively as Heterodera major and H. avenae. The history of its nomenclature is reviewed and a summary is given of the usage of the two names since 1940. In the light of this information a proposal is made to the International Commission on Zoological Nomendature that neither the name minor O. Schmidt, 1930, nor the name major O. Schmidt, 1930 be used in preference to the name avenae Wollenweber, 1924, by those zoologists who consider that all of these names apply to the same taxon. It is further requested that the nominal species Heterodera avenae is to be interpreted by reference to the neotype which is briefly described. This is a lemon-shaped cyst with brown to black wall 9p. thick with conspicuous punctation and vulval slit 12/mu/ long. Eggs 126 /mu/ long by 56/mu/ wide. Larvae 530/mu/ long with slightly curved tails, tapering, rounded heads and stylets 25/mu/. long.

M. T. Franklin.
