Mononchidae of Ivory Coast savannahs: genera Iotonchus (Cobb, 1916) and Miconchus Andrassy, 1958
AbstractSoil samples were collected in 1976 and 1979 in savannahs of the Ivory Coast at Lamto, Dabou and Foroforo. The species which according to Mulvey's definitions (1978) belong to the genera Iotonchus (Cobb, 1916) Altherr, 1950 and Miconchus Andrassy, 1958 are here reported and briefly described. Nematodes were extracted from the soil by means of a modification of Dalmasso's method (1964). The specimens were killed and fixed in F.A.4: 10; processed to 100% glycerine and mounted in permanent slides. The type material of the new species has been deposited in the Nematode Collection of Plantenziektenkundige, Wageningen, The N ether lands.
