Criconemella rosmarini sp. n. (Criconematidae: Tylenchida) from Spain
AbstractSpecimens identified as Criconemella rosmarini sp. n. were found in soil samples from around the roots of Rosmarinus officinalis L. during a survey of several plant communities in the Sierra de Cazorla, Jaen. The species can be distinguished by the presence in the female of a fringe of short spine-like processes on each body annule, numerous anastomoses of annules along the body, stylet 61-76 I"m long and a convex-conoid postvulval region of body with VLiVB of 0.9-1.4. The systematic position of Criconemella is discussed.
