Spiral nematodes of the genus Helicotylenchus are among the most ubiquitous With the exception of Helicotylenchus multicinctus, spiral nematodes are not. The damage symptoms are similar to those caused by other serious root endoparasites of the family Pratylenchidae, both on banana plants and plantains. The life cycle and mating behavior of Helicotylenchus multicinctus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) were observed in vitro on excised roots of Musa cavendishii in.

Diversity and phylogenetic relationships within the spiral nematodes of Helicotylenchus Steiner, Tylenchida: Occurrence of plant-parasitic nematodes associated with crops of agricultural importance in Trinidad. Reproduction is highly variable among species of Helicotylenchus. This report consists the first integrated identification of both nematode species based on morphometric and molecular characteristics and confirms the occurrence of these two nematodes in Greece as had been stated in earlier reports.

Plant Disease Reporter, The Greek population of L. Helicotylenchus pseudorobustus will generally stay in one location feeding on multidinctus single food cell, but can also move to a different location on the same or different root and induce a new food cell at the new location. Plant pests helicoty,enchus quarantine importance to the Caribbean.

Helucotylenchus Journal of Agricultural Research. Injection of DBCP into the soil as a 1: The nematode attacks the outer cortical part of the root causing characteristic necrotic lesions, which are at first yellow in colour and then turn reddish-brown to black.

Adults in relaxed body posture.

Plant-parasitic nematodes associated with bananas and plantains in Southern Florida.

Discoloration and necroses often also occurred near the infection points. Spermathecae rounded, usually filled with sperms.

Caudal alae crenate, enveloping tail but not protruding beyond it in lateral view. Because these symptoms could be induced by other causes, a laboratory assay conducted by a qualified diagnostic lab such as the Florida Nematode Assay Lab is required for a positive diagnosis. Mukherjee B; Dasgupta MK, De Guiran G; Vilardebo A, Distribution Maps of Plant Diseases, No. A healthy plantation may remain productive for up to 20 years; an infested one for only 2 or 3 years.

Go to distribution map Rarely, in heavy infestations, the root lesions can coalesce and the necrosis becomes extensive, causing distortion followed by decay of the root. Soil population of Helicotylenchus multicinctus under Pueraria phaseoloides, Flemingia macrophylla and natural bush fallows and their effect on plantain yield in the humid forest zone of southern Cameroon. Revista Agricultura, Habana, 1: In Greece, both species have been previously reported but no morphometrics or molecular data were available for these species.


Vulva is a depressed transverse slit on ventral side of the body. Continuing to multicincts www. Blakestudying the host-parasite relationships of this species on banana roots, observed that adults inoculated fed within 36 hours upon parenchymatous cells partly embedded in the root; after 4 days they were wholly inside the cortical layer to a depth of about cells.

Helicotylenchus multicinctus

Title Adult – line drawing. The body of Helicotylenchus spp. The third-stage juvenile has a convex-conoid tail, without any projection, and helicotylencnus gonad primordium averaging cells.

While Helicotylenchus pseudorobustus is a parasite of many economically important plants, it is seldom considered a major pest on most of them. Oesophagus with rounded metacorpus, and glandular part overlapping intestine ventrally, with subventral glands posterior to dorsal. Study of field populations of H. Israel Journal of Agricultural Research, Economic Importance Back to Top While Helicotylenchus pseudorobustus is a parasite of many economically important plants, it is seldom considered a major pest on most of them.

Nematodes of the genus Helicotylenchus are spiral nematodes and feed on a large variety of plant species.

Crop Protection, 27 In Africa, nematicides applied with drip irrigation have showed to decrease cost and increase effectiveness. Ultimately feeding deprives the plant of water and nutrients and can lead to shorten plant stand. Distribution Maps Top of page You can pan and zoom the map.
