Heterorhabditis hepialius and Heterorhabditis marelatus were studied to evaluate their taxonomic position. Results from morphological and morphometric analysis and cross-breeding tests indicated these species are conspecific. Therefore, H. hepialius is considered a junior synonym of H. marelatus. A redescription of this taxon is presented.
