Mesocriconema xenoplax (Raski) Loof & De Grisse, 1989
This ring nematode is a serious agricultural pest, infesting mainly the roots of fruit and nut trees. For example, it is a major factor in causing the "peach tree short life" syndrome. In California, 38% of the orchards growings Prunus have been found to contain this species. However, it can also attack many other plants. The nematode is widely distributed in many regions and a slow moving ectoparasite which can nevertheless build up high populations in certain soil types, causing significant damage.
