filariform fi·lar·i·form (fə-lâr'ə-fôrm')
Resembling filariae or other types of small nematode worms.
Thin or hairlike.
The young of this generation are the more slender "filariform embryos" (Fig. 111).
Some other filariform nematodes have been imperfectly described.
As to the nematoids, which were filariform, they neither corresponded in size nor structure with my strongyle embryos.
