Aphelenchoides ritzemabosi ( Schwartz, 1911) Steiner & Buhrer, 1932 a 

After A. fragariae  , A. ritzemabosi  has the highest number of reported hosts in both flowering plants and ferns ( Table 1, Fig. 1View FIGURE 1). It is particularly problematic on Chrysanthemum  L. and has previously been reported from circa 200 plant species ( Escuer & Bello 2000, McCuiston 2007). That number increases to 321 in this paper with 314 flowering plants and seven ferns ( Table 1). Escuer & Bello (2000) mentioned that several weed species or noncultivated plants are suitable hosts for this species and further studies should be addressed to confirm this possibility. Reports in Asteraceae Bercht. & J. Pres  are especially numerous (see online database) and around 85 species of this family have been mentioned as associated plants with A. ritzemabosi  .
