Morphological observations on two plant nematodes: Pratylenchoides laticauda and Rotylenchus quartus, with the scanning electron microscope

  • N. Vovlas

Abstract

About 500 soil samples were collected during a nematode survey
made in 1983 in northern Italy, several of which were found to contain
specimens of Pratylenchoides laticauda Braun et Loof, 1959 and
Rotylenchus quartus (Andrassy) Sher, 1959. There are no morphological
studies of these two species based on observations with the Scanning
electron microscope (SEM). External morphological characters as seen
by SEM, particular of the head, and cuticular structures, are described
in this article.
