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.

The histological changes in banana roots caused by Radopholus similis and Helicotylenchus multicinctus.

The presence of males is a useful biological character to separate Helicotylenchus multicinctus from species that do not have males. On golf and sports turfgrasses, nematicides are applied for management of Helicotylenchus paxilli in Florida. The third-stage juvenile has a convex-conoid tail, without any projection, and a gonad primordium averaging cells. The body of Helicotylenchus spp.


Vulva prominent, a depressed transverse slit. Find articles by Emmanuel A. Another species that is very common on many crops, ornamentals, and other cultivated and non-cultivated plants in Florida is Helicotylenchus dihystera. For both species, morphometrics and molecular data of Greek populations were provided, resulting in the first integrative identification of both nematode species based on morphometric and molecular markers, confirming the occurrence of these two nematodes in Greece as had been stated in earlier reports.

Phasmids pore-like, annules anterior to anus level. In Florida, seashore paspalum, a turfgrass used in tropical and subtropical regions, is particularly susceptible to infestation by Helicotylenchus paxilli. Found in most banana and plantain growing regions of the world including tropical and temperate regions of Asia, Africa, North America, Central America, South America and the Pacific Islands. Longidorus euonymus Mali and Hooper, is a species widely distributed in central and south Europe found in a wide range of hosts including perennial, woody, annual and herbaceous plants Oro et al.


Chemical Control Nematicides are one of the most important means of controlling H. Esophageal glands compact, helicotylenhus around front end of intestine; dorsal glands anterior to subventrals.

College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources. Hoplolaimidae Filip’ev, Nemata from Rwandan banana fields. Heavy infection by Helicotylenchus spp. Nematodes were extracted from soil samples by wet sieving and decanting method Cobb, Reproduced from Siddiqi MR, African Plant Protection, 9 1: It has been found in the Mediterranean area in association with bananas in Cyprus, Lebanon, and Israel Strich-Harari et al.

Photograph by William T. Received Jun Diversity and phylogenetic relationships within the spiral nematodes of Helicotylenchus Steiner, Tylenchida: Procorpus usually expanded anteriorly. Chemical Control Due to the variable regulations around de- registration of pesticides, we are for the moment not including any specific chemical control recommendations. In Greece, both species have been previously reported but no morphometrics or molecular data were available for these species.

Symptoms Back to Top The symptoms of Helicotylenchus pseudorobustus are more subtle than those of certain other nematodes such as root-knot or sting nematodes. Similarly, a population of Helicotylenchus multicinctus was detected infecting banana roots from an outdoor crop in Tertsa, Crete.

Some species are hermaphrodites that self-fertilize their own eggs without mating. The life stages of Helicotylenchus multicinctus Cobb in banana roots. List of Plant Diseases in American Samoa Helicotylenchuus of root-knot and spiral nematodes on bananas in Cyprus. Jairajpuri MS, Ahmad Helicotylebchus.


These relaxed nematodes are curled into a spiral. Spermathecae rounded, usually filled with sperms.

Helicotylenchus multicinctus – Wikipedia

Open in a separate window. Adults in relaxed body posture. Lip region hemispherical, with annuli; framework heavily sclerotized; cephalids usually indistinct.

Hoplolaimidae Introduction – Distribution – Life Cycle and Biology – Hosts – Symptoms – Identification – Economic Importance – Management – Selected References Introduction Back to Top The common name spiral nematode is most often applied to nematodes in the genus Helicotylenchusbut it is also sometimes applied to other genera in the family Hoplolaimidae, including Rotylenchus mylticinctus, AorolaimusScutellonemaand Peltamigratus.

Stylet guiding tube prominent, bulbous.

It has also been recorded to have a wide host range Goodey et al. Ecology and pathogenicity of the Hoplolaimidae Nemata from the sahelian zone of West Africa: The nematodes can survive 4 months without host plants, but is less resistant to desiccation than H. Reported median body size for this species Length mm; width micrometers – Click:.

Second stage juveniles possess a digitate tail. However, often their damage has not been well quantified or documented.
