Abstract

In a nematode survey of Tylenchidae carried out in anise (Pimpinella anisum) growing areas in Burdur province, Turkey, 15 species (Sakia propora, Irantylenchus clavidorus, Boleodorus mirus, Tylenchorhynchus annulatus, Bitylenchus maximus, Quinisulcius acutus, Nagelus affinis, Hoplolaimus galeatus, Helicotylenchus dihystera, Pratylenchus zeae, Pratylenchus alkani [Pratylenchoides alkani], Meloidogyne arenaria, Loofia thienemanni, Ditylenchus dipsaci, Safianema anchilisposoma) of the families Tylenchidae, Dolichodoridae, Hoplolaimidae, Pratylenchidae, Meloidogynidae, Hemicycliophoridae and Anguinidae were isolated. Each of them constitutes new records on anise. Sakia propora and Boleodorus mirus are reported for the first time in the nematode fauna of Turkey.
