A new genus and species of cyst nematode, Vittatidera zeaphila, is described from Tennessee. The new genus is superficially similar to Cactodera but is distinguished from other cyst-forming taxa in having a persistent lateral field in females and cysts, persistent vulval lips covering a circumfenestrate vulva, and subventral gland nuclei of the female contained in a separate small lobe. Infective juveniles (J2) are distinguished from all previously described Cactodera spp. by the short stylet…

A new species of cyst nematode, Cactodera torreyanae sp. n., parasitising romerito plants, Suaeda torreyana (Chenopodiaceae), found in highly saline soils in Texcoco, Mexico, is described. The new

Characterization of Vittatidera zeaphila (Nematoda: Heteroderidae) from Indiana with molecular phylogenetic analysis of the genus

In the summer of 2016, a field of corn in Spencer County, Indiana was observed with heavily stunted plants, and from the affected roots a large number of cysts were recovered, the first report of V. zeaphila in Indiana.

Cryphodera sinensis n. sp. (Nematoda: Heteroderidae), a non-cyst-forming parasitic nematode from the root of ramie Boehmeria nivea in China

Abstract Cryphodera sinensis n. sp. is described from ramie (Boehmeria nivea) based on the morphology and molecular analyses of rRNA small subunit (SSU), D2D3 expansion domains of large subunit (LSU

Cactodera chenopodiae (Nematoda: Heteroderidae), a new species of cyst nematode parasitizing common lambsquarter (Chenopodium album) in Liaoning, China.

Although morphometric comparisons with additional Cactodera species show the overlapping of diagnostic morphological characters, phylogenetic analyses based on both rRNA genes support C. chenopodiae n.

Heterodera elachista the Japanese cyst nematode parasitizing corn in Northern Italy: integrative diagnosis and bionomics

Considering the limited host-range of this nematode, that include two of the three world’s most important crops, special attention is needed for avoiding the dispersal of this Nemesis into new areas, by movement of soil on equipment, water, and contaminated containers infested soil, or agricultural practices.

Identification, phylogeny and phylogeography of circumfenestrate cyst nematodes (Nematoda: Heteroderidae) as inferred from analysis of ITS-rDNA.

Some 134 ITS rRNA gene sequences for circumfenestrate cyst nematodes and two sequences for non-cyst nematodes of the family Heteroderidae, of which 46 were newly obtained, were analysed by


Preliminary data on potential sources of resistance to V. zeaphila suggest that resistance is not a dominant trait and that there is a potential role of the cytoplasm in conferring resistance.

A reference of identification keys to plant-parasitic nematodes (Nematoda: Tylenchida\ Tylenchomorpha)

The present review has documented a list of keys for identifying plant-parasitic nematodes at different taxonomic levels including superfamily, family, subfamily, genus, and species. It was compiled

Plant-parasitic nematodes of potential phytosanitary importance, their main hosts and reported yield losses

Of the 250 named species of plant-parasitic nematodes, only 126 species from 33 genera are currently listed as regulated pests in one or more countries worldwide and some also acted as vectors for viruses.

Chemosynthetic ectosymbionts associated with a shallow-water marine nematode

The discovery of potential symbiotic associations of a shallow-water organism with taxa usually associated with deep-sea hydrothermal vents, is new for Nematoda, opening new avenues for the study of ecology and bacterial relationships with meiofauna.



An unusual cyst nematode from New Zealand, Paradolichodera tenuissima gen. n., sp. n. (Tylenchida: Heteroderidae)

Summary – A new genus, Paradolichodera gen. n., is proposed for a heteroderid species parasitising the rush Eleocharis gracilis on the banks of a lagoon near Christchurch, New Zealand. The slender

Phylogenetic classification of the family Heteroderidae (Nematoda: Tylenchida)

The family Heteroderidae, its six subfamilies and 17 genera are defined or redefined, and for each of the genera the nominal species and their synonyms are listed.

Notes on the genus Cactodera Krall & Krall, 1978 and proposal of Betulodera betulae gen. nov., comb. nov. (Nematoda: Heteroderidae)

An attempt is made to improve the definition of the genus Cactodera, sensu lato, which is characterised by circumfenestrate cysts with only a slightly protruding vulval cone, three incisures in the lateral field of the second-stage juveniles and presence of phasmids in the males.

New Species of Cyst Nematode Heterodera pakistanensis (Nematoda: Heteroderidae) Attacking Wheat in Pakistan.

Second-stage juveniles of Heterodera pakistanensis can be distinguished from H. cyperi J2 by an areolated lateral field with four incisures and shorter stylet, whereas cysts are separated by a more elongated vulva slit and the conspicuous structure of the underbridge.

Four New Species of Heteroderidae Including Ekphymatodera n. gen. from California.

Four new species and a new genus of Heteroderidae from California are described, and their significance for phylogenetic analysis of the family is discussed. The new genus with type species,

Comparative morphology of globodera cactodera and punctodera spp heteroderidae with scanning electron microscopy

Comparative morphological-developmental investigations of overall cuticular and perineal patterns of females and cysts include promising characters for interpreting phylogeny but will best be evaluated with insight into changes with age.

Comparative detailed morphology of the Heteroderinae Filip'ev & Schuurmans Stekhoven, 1941, sensu Luc et al. (1988): phylogenetic systematics and revised classification

These phylogenetic analyses strongly support monophyly of all cyst-forming genera (tribe Heteroderini) contrary to previous hypotheses of repeated evolution of the cyst (Wouts, 1985), and indicate unresolved alternative hypotheses for others.

Phylogenetic analysis of Tylenchida Thorne, 1949 as inferred from D2 and D3 expansion fragments of the 28S rRNA gene sequences

The evolutionary relationships of 82 species of tylenchid and aphelenchid nematodes were evaluated by use of sequence data of the D2 and D3 expansion fragments of the 28S ribosomal RNA genes and showed that the order Tylenchida comprises lineages that largely correspond to two suborders and other taxonomic divisions as proposed by Siddiqi (2000).

A polymerase chain reaction method for identification of five major meloidogyne species.

Amplification and digestion of DNA from juveniles from single isolates of M. marylandi, M. naasi, and M. nataliei indicated that the diagnostic application of this primer set may extend to less frequently encountered Meloidogyne species.
