Coffee (Coffea arabica L. cv. Catuai) seedlings with abundant small root galls caused by an unknown root-knot nematode were found in southern Costa Rica. Morphology, esterase and malate dehydrogenase isozyme phenotypes and DNA markers differentiated this nematode from known Meloidogyne spp. A new species, M. lopezi n. sp., with common name Costa Rican root-knot nematode, is suggested. Meloidogyne lopezi n. sp. is distinguished from other coffee-associated Meloidogyne spp. by size of female lips… CONTINUE READING
