A new nematode, Elaeolenchus parthenonema n. g., n. sp., is described from the palm-pollinating weevil Elaeidobius kamerunicus Faust. The new genus is placed in the Anandranematidae n. fam., which, together with the genus Anandranema Poinar et al., 1993, is characterised by nematodes having only a single autotokous generation in the insect host. This is the first report of a member of this superfamily reproducing only parthenogenetically. The development of E. parthenonema and its effect on the… Expand

Descriptions of Deladenus albizicus n. sp. and D. processus n. sp. (Nematoda: Hexatylina) from Haryana, India.
Two different nematodes were isolated from the bark of Albizia lebbeck trees; one from insect infested tree and another from noninfested, healthy tree and it is proposed to classify Deladenus species in three groups based on female and spermatogonia dimorphism, mode of reproduction, and insect parasitism.

Pollination Activity of Elaeidobius kamerunicus (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) on Oil Palm on Hainan Island
To increase the population of E. kamerunicus in Hainan, some steps should be taken including releases of adult weevils in oil palm plantations, and control of the weevil's predators and parasites, such as rats and harmful nematodes. Expand
