First report of <i>Mesocriconema sphaerocephalum</i> (Taylor, 1936) Loof, 1989 associated with wild grass in Botswana

Publication Date Jan 1, 2021


Abstract During a survey on the biodiversity of plant-parasitic nematodes of natural areas in Botswana, Mesocriconema sphaerocephalum was discovered around the rhizosphere of the wild grass. The nematodes were extracted using the tray method and then fixed according to the available protocols. The morphological characters fit well with the M. sphaerocephalum. Besides, molecular aspects using 18S and 28S rDNA were studied. The phylogenetic analysis of 18S and 28S rDNA placed the examined population with other populations of M. sphaerocephalum in a group. According to the knowledge, this is the first report of M. spaherocephalum from Botswana.
