Aphelenchoides sphaerocephalus Goodey, 1953 

A. sphaerocephalus  was described from Evodia roxburghiana Benth.  ( Rutaceae Juss.  ) on dry leaves with yellow specks ( Goodey 1953). This is the only known host for this nematode (UCDavis' Nemabase 2010), and to the best of our knowledge, that report is also the only one on the family Rutaceae  for any plant-parasitic Aphelenchoides  . It should be noted that Ditylenchus drepanocercus Goodey, 1953  ( Tylenchida Thorne, 1949  : Anguinidae Nicoll, 1935  ) was found occurring with A. sphaerocephalus  in the same symptomatic samples ( Goodey 1953).
