Meloidogyne floridensis Handoo et al., 2004 - (peach root-knot nematode)

This nematode is found in Florida, U.S.A. and since 2018 also in California (Westphal et al., 2019). In Florida it frequently infests peach roots, including several popular root stocks which are resistant to other plant parasitic nematodes like Meloidogyne incognita and M. javanica. Only the rootstock "Flordaguard" is currently resistant and recommended for planting in Florida. It also attacks the roots of other crops like almonds in California. M. floridensis was named "Meloidogyne incognito race 3" before 2004.
