Identification of root-knot nematode species in Fujian.

Abstract

From the samples of 60 root-knot nematode [Meloidogyne spp.] populations collected from 30 kinds of host plants in 13 counties of Fujian, China, 23 species were identified including 2 new species: Meloidogyne citri sp. nov. and M. cirricauda sp. nov. Eleven species were new geographic records in China. 80% of the nematode populations were found to be mixtures of 2 or more species. A key to species is also given.
