Paralongidorus bullatus n. sp. from groundnut soils in Niger and comments on Xiphinema parasetariae Luc uri icon

abstract

  • Paralongidorus bullatus n. sp. from groundnut soils in Sador6, Niger is described andillustrated. It is distinguishable from most species of the genus by its body and odontostyle lengths,knob-like head, and digitate ending of the protoplasmic region of the tail. Length of the femalebody is 4.4-5.5 mm, of the odontostyle 132-156/~m, and of the tail 32-44 t~m. Tail terminus isconoid to broadly rounded. Uteri are well developed, without sperms. Males are not found. Xiphinemaparasetariae Luc 1958, a species inquirenda, is validated and, based on measurements and tail structures,X. attorodorum Luc 1961 is proposed as a synonym of X. parasetariae. Additional measurements aregiven for its females and juveniles
