L. Barsi, F. Lamberti

Abstract


Populations of Longidorus distinctus, L. euonymus and Xiphinema italiae from Vojvodina Province, Northern Serbia are briefly described. Morphometries and illustrations of females and juvenile stages are provided. Males of L. euonymus and X. italiae are reported for the first time. Further research on taxonomy and biology of X. italiae is suggested because of its high morphometric variability and existence of populations with either four or three juvenile stages.
