holomyarian (adjective; Greek holos, whole; mys, muscle): (NEMATA) Describing the longitudinal muscle cells indistinguishable as individual cells so as to appear like a single band as viewed in transverse section. This term was discarded in nematology when Butschli in 1873 showed that, by definition, no examples exist.
