R. Crozzoli, C. Chedas, Ana M. Casassa

Abstract


In the course of a nematode survey in Venezuela, two Criconematid species identified as Hemicriconemoides communis and H. mangiferae were found. H. communis was found around roots of Psidium guajava in Mara Municipality (Zulia State) and is recorded for the first time in Venezuela, and H. mangiferae was recorded in many areas. Measurements and light microscope photomicrographs of both species are given together with scanning electron microscopy illustrations of H. communis.
