Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita (pathogen) (Schneider)

The nematode is a biocontrol agent against slugs and attacks a wide variety of species from several families with the help of a symbiotic bacterium. The species does not produce males and has been used in Europe and North America. It is commercially available as a biological control agent (Nemaslug®).

For reviews on this biological control agent see Rae (2017) and Wikipedia.
