Anguina pacificae is a significant pest of Poa annua golf course greens in northern California. This study presents the first confirmed case of an A. pacificae infestation outside of North America, where the nematode's distribution is further restricted to a relatively limited coastal region. Species confirmation was made by morphometric and molecular methods and comparisons to closely related species including the European species, Anguina agropyri. The A. pacificae population detected on an… Expand

Distribution, Biology and Pathology of Anguina pacificae.
Methods were developed for the continuous propagation of A. pacificae on P. annua in growth chambers, and they were used to examine the life cycle and host-parasite relationships of the nematode. Expand
A New Gall-Forming Species of Anguina Scopoli, 1777 (Nemata: Anguinidae) on Bluegrass, Poa annua L., from the Coast of California.
Anguina pacificae n. sp. is described and illustrated from stem galls on bluegrass, Poa annua L., from golf courses along coastal California. The females are characterized by constrictions in theExpand
Seasonal population dynamics of the plant-parasitic nematode, Anguina pacificae on golf course putting greens in California.
The data suggest that the peak of infective juveniles that are released from the galls and search for a new host occurs during late spring and midsummer, and a positive correlation was found between gall size and the nematode population within it. Expand

The ability of Anguina tritici to act as a vector for Clavibacter toxicus in wheat was determined in a pot experiment and suggests that there is potential for a non-toxigenic Cl Cavibacter sp. Expand
Subanguina radicicola, the Root-Gall Nematode Infecting Poa annua in New Brunswick, Canada.
Poa annua frequently is found as the dominant turfgrass species on golf course putting greens grown in the range of cool-season grasses. While not intentionally established, it is an aggressive weedExpand
Vulpia myuros and the annual ryegrass toxicity organisms, Anguina funesta and Clavibacter toxicus
Vulpia myuros was found to be a host for both Anguina funesla and Clavibcu;ler IOxicus (the organisms responsible for annual ryegrass toxicity) in an infested Lolium rigidum pasture in WesternExpand
Taxonomy of some species of Anguina Scopoli, 1777 (sensu Brzeski, 1981) forming galls on Gramineae: value of diagnostic characters and present status of nominal species.
Morphological and biometrical studies of species of Anguina causing galls on Gramineae, as represented in two nematode collections at Harpenden, England, indicated that species are often difficult to distinguish apart from their hosts. Expand
Root-Knot Nematodes in Golf Course Greens of the Western United States.
Polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism of the intergenic region between the cytochrome oxidase and 16S rRNA genes in the mitochondrial genome with restriction enzyme SspI was able to distinguish populations of M. graminis from M. marylandi, providing a fast and inexpensive method for future diagnosis of these nematodes from turf.
