Meloidogyne ethiopica Whitehead, 1968

This root-knot nematode is widely distributed and infests various crops. It can be itentified by the perineal pattern of adult females and the morphometric characteristics of the second-stage juveniles. It forms a species group together with M. luci and M. inornata. These 3 species have very similar, partly overlapping, morphological features, and examination of their DNA structure is needed for reliable identification (Stare et al., 2019).
