Aphelenchoides blastophthorus Franklin, 1952 

This species is commonly found on ornamental plants of the genera Anchusa  L. ( Boraginaceae Juss.  ), Begonia  L. ( Begoniaceae C. Agardh  ), Caltha  L. and Trollius  L. ( Ranunculaceae Juss.  ), Cephalaria Schrad. ex Roem. & Schult.  ( Dipsacaceae Juss.  ), Convallaria  L. ( Asparagaceae  ), Dipsacus  L. ( Dipsacaceae  ), Geum  L. ( Rosaceae  ), Narcissus  L. ( Amaryllidaceae J.St.  -Hil.) and Viola  L. ( Violaceae Batsch  ) ( Escuer & Bello 2000, Ortuño & Oros 2002), Anemone  L. ( Ranunculaceae  ) ( McCuiston et al. 2007), Iris  L. ( Iridaceae Juss.  ) and Hepatica Mill.  ( Ranunculaceae  ) (UCDavis Nemabase 2010) but it is particularly important in Scabiosa caucasica M. Bieb.  ( Caprifoliaceae Juss.  ) on which it destroys the inflorescence and causes laminae distortion ( Singh et al. 2013). Haukeland & Brekke (2000) also showed the damaging potential of this species on strawberry ( Fragaria  x anannasa Duchesne, Rosaceae  ) in Norway.
