Description of Non-Type Seinura winchesi from Mushroom Compost (Nematoda: Seinuridae)
AbstractNon-type material identified as Seinura winchesi, and deposited in the collection of the Nematology Department, Rothamsted Experimental Station, England, is described. The material was collected from mushroom compost in Leeds, England, in 1957. Females of this population are characterized by a set-off head, knobless stylet (20-21 µm), two rows of oogonia-oocytes, and absence of a postuterine sac. The median bulb is oblong and, at times, is constricted in the middle. The body is 565 to 675 µm long and tapers posteriorly to a pointed terminus. The cuticle is finely annulated, and there are three incisures in the lateral field. The ovary is outstretched and overlaps the esophageal gland lobes. A spermatheca is present, and spermatozoa are visible. The vulva is posteriorly located (V = 77-80), and a flap is absent. Males are 550 to 680 µm long with a spicate tail that bears three pairs of subventral papillae. The spike is short (14-18 µm), about one-half the tail length. The testis is 360 to 412 µm long, not reflexed, and at times overlaps the esophageal gland lobes. Spermatogonia-spermatocytes are in two rows. Spicules are 14 to 15 µm long with a prominent apex, and small rostrum. A bursa and gubernaculum are absent.
