We prove bifurcation results for (compact portions of) nodoids in R3, whose boundary consists of two fixed coaxial circles of the same radius lying in parallel planes. Degeneracy occurs at an infinite discrete sequence of instants, that are divided into four classes. Different types of bifurcation and break of symmetry occur at each instant of three of the four classes; bifurcation does not occur at the degeneracy instants of the fourth class.
