Aphelenchoides nechaleos Hooper & Ibrahim, 1994


Aphelenchoides nechaleos Hooper & Ibrahim, 1994 

A. nechaleos  was extracted from stems of rice in Sierra Leone. Since this species occurred with A. besseyi  it was originally thought as a variant of the latter, but it was later described as a new species ( Hooper & Ibrahim 1994).
