Aphelenchoides blastophthorus Franklin, 1952  

This species is commonly found on ornamental plants of the genera Anchusa   L. ( Boraginaceae Juss.   ), Begonia   L. ( Begoniaceae C. Agardh   ), Caltha   L. and Trollius   L. ( Ranunculaceae Juss.   ), Cephalaria Schrad. ex Roem. & Schult.   ( Dipsacaceae Juss.   ), Convallaria   L. ( Asparagaceae   ), Dipsacus   L. ( Dipsacaceae   ), Geum   L. ( Rosaceae   ), Narcissus   L. ( Amaryllidaceae J.St.   -Hil.) and Viola   L. ( Violaceae Batsch   ) ( Escuer & Bello 2000, Ortuño & Oros 2002), Anemone   L. ( Ranunculaceae   ) ( McCuiston et al. 2007), Iris   L. ( Iridaceae Juss.   ) and Hepatica Mill.   ( Ranunculaceae   ) (UCDavis Nemabase 2010) but it is particularly important in Scabiosa caucasica M. Bieb.   ( Caprifoliaceae Juss.   ) on which it destroys the inflorescence and causes laminae distortion ( Singh et al. 2013). Haukeland & Brekke (2000) also showed the damaging potential of this species on strawberry ( Fragaria   x anannasa Duchesne, Rosaceae   ) in Norway.
