F. Lamberti, A. Agostinelli, V. Radicci

Abstract


Longidorus africanus, L. laevicapitatus, L. latocephalus, Paralongidorus erriae, Xiphinema elongatum, X. hygrophilum, X. incognitum, X. italiae, X. santos and X. simillimum are reported from Egypt. Brief descriptions are complemented with morphometrics and illustrations. The scatter diagram separating juvenile stages is given, when sufficient juveniles were available. L. latocephalus, P. erriae and all the Xiphinema species, except X. elongatum, constitute new records for the Country. The male of X. simillimum is described for the first time. It is proposed that African reports of L. pisi Edwards et al. are regarded as L. latocephalus.
