The previously unknown life-cycles of Haemonchus bedfordi, Impalala tuberculata and Longistrongylus sabie parasitic in impala, are recorded. Observations on the morphology of the developmental stages and their habitat of these three nematode species are descriptionbed. The similarities and differences to closely related species or subspecies are discussed.The morphology of the developmental stages of Haemonchus bedfordi are compared to the Haemonchus spp., H. contortus and H. placei.
