Z, Bazgir E, Naghavi A (2020) Report of five species of plant parasitic nematodes associated with hawthorn forest trees in western Iran. Plant Pathology Science 9(1):15-29. DOI: 10.2982/PPS.9.1.15
Introduction: The Hoplolaimidae family is one of the largest and economically most important families of the order/ infraorder Tylenchida / Tylenchomorpha. The members of this family spread all over the world and can be found under different climatic conditions. Some species in this family are serious plant parasites and significantly reduce crop yields. Materials and Methods: In the forests of Khorramabad city in western Iran 70 samples were collected from the soil around the roots of hawthorn trees in the period of 2017-2019. After recording the properties of each sample, they were transferred to a laboratory and cooled at 4 °C. The nematodes were extracted from the soil using the tray method, then fixed and transferred to pure glycerin, and permanent slides were made. The morphological and morphometric properties of the nematodes were examined using a light microscope equipped with a Dino Capture camera. The nematode species were identified using scientific identification keys. Results: Five species of plant parasitic nematodes belonging to two genera of Hoplolaimidae were identified in this study, including Rotylenchus goodeyi, Helicotylenchus canadensis, H. digonicus, H. vulgaris and H. tunisiensis. Conclusion: R. goodeyi is reporting as a new record for the nematode fauna of Iran. Morphometrical and morphological characteristics of these nemadodes are described here.
