Other plant-parasitic Aphelenchoides  

While the MPPA represent 95 % of the total reports, the other 10 species have been reported only from a limited number of plants ( Table 1). Noteworthy, some of them were reported on hosts with records of the MPPA species, and special attention should be paid in such instances for an accurate identification ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ). Some plant genera could shelter a combination of the following species: A. blastopthorus   + A. subtenuis   on Narcissus   sp. ( Amaryllidaceae   ), A. blastopthorus   + A. fragariae   on Begonia   sp. ( Begoniaceae   ), A. blastopthorus   + A. fragariae   + A. ritzemabosi   + A. subtenuis   on Iris   sp. ( Iridaceae   ), A. fragariae   + A. ritzemabosi   + A. subtenuis   on Colchicum   sp. ( Colchicaceae   ) and A. ritzemabosi   + A. subtenuis   on Tulipa   sp. ( Liliaceae   ). Species reported from a limited number of plant species in particular locations, i.e. A. ensete   , A. nechaleos   and A. paranechaleos   , require more sampling and laboratory tests to confirm their specificity.
