F. Roca, M. Arias


Paratrichodorus hispanus sp. n. found in the rhizosphere of wheat in Spain is described. This species is similar to P. grandis Rodriguez and Bell, 1978 from which it differs in its longer spicules, shorter onchiostyle and different position of ventromedian cervical pore and to P. atlanticus Allen, 1957 from which it differs in its shorter spicules and onchiostyle and different shape of tail and number of postcloacal papillae.
