Two new Xiphinema species fron Portugal (Nematoda, Dorylaimida)
AbstractSoil samples collected from various localities by one of us (M.J. Pereira) in Portugal contained two species of Xiphinema which to the best of our knowledge are new to science. They are described and illustrated in this paper. Nematodes were extracted from soil samples by the Cobb wet sieve technique, killed and fixed in 5% hot formalin and mounted in glycerin on nematology slides by the slow method. Specimens were measured with the aid of a camera lucida.
