Meloidogyne konaensis Eisenback et al., 1994 - (Kona coffee root-knot nematode)

The nematode attacks coffee in Hawaii. It was first isolated at the Kona Experimental Station on the island of Hawaii. Affected roots appear knobby, galled, lumpy, or swollen. Infested coffee plants are stunted with thin stems, declining branches and yellowing leaves (Nelson et al., 2002).
