Empidomermis riouxi n. sp. is described from Aedes (Ochlerotatus) detritus, in Camargue. The species differs from E. cozi, which is the only other species of the genus, by having a sligtly larger size and a very little pronounced cephalic constriction. Males differ also from those of E. cozi by the number and disposition of the caudal papillae. The postparasitic larvae escape from adult mosquitoes, rarely from pupae. In laboratory conditions, the nematodes enter the moist sand in the bottom of…

Mermithid nematodes found in adult Anopheles from southeastern Senegal

Maximum parsimony analysis confirmed that the nematode parasites found in Anopheles were indeed mermithid parasites, and of the mersmithid sequences available in GenBank, they were most closely related to Strelkovimermis spiculatus.

Current status of nematodes for the biological control of insects

This review highlights published research on the principal entomogenous nematodes that have potential as biological control agents of insects and suggests that they will remain ‘on the shelf’ until the need for such biological control provides small businesses with the incentive to make them available for general use.
