Found inThe American heritage dictionary of the English language, via WWW, Mar. 24, 2008 (nematode: Any of several worms of the phylum Nematoda, having unsegmented, cylindrical bodies, often narrowing at each end, and including parasitic forms such as the hookworm and pinworm. Also called roundworm)
Wikipedia, Mar. 24, 2008 (Nematode. The nematodes or roundworms (Phylum Nematoda) are one of the most common phyla of animals, with over 80,000 different described species. The nematodes were originally named Nematoidea by Rudolphi (1808). They were renamed nematodes by Burmeister 1837 (as a family; Leuckart 1848 and von Siebold 1848 both promoted them to the rank of order), then Nematoda (Diesing 1861), though Nathan Cobb (1919) argued that they should be called Nemata or Nemates (and in English 'nemas' rather than 'nematodes'). After some confusion which saw the nematodes placed (often together with the horsehair worms, nematomorpha) as a class or order in various groups such as Aschelminthes, Lankester (1877) definitively promoted them to the level of phylum)
