Aphelenchoides arachidis Bos, 1977 

A. arachidis  was found in Arachis hypogagea  L. ( Fabaceae Lindl.  ) ( Minton & Baujard 1990) as an endoparasite of groundnut testa in Nigeria ( Bos 1977 a) and more recently in Egypt and South Africa ( Montasser et al. 2008, Lesufi et al. 2015). Although the symptoms have only been described on Arachis  , roots of some Poaceae Barnhart  species ( Oryza sativa  L., Saccharum officinarum  L., Sorghum  sp., Pennisetum glaucum  (L.) R. Br. and Zea mays  L.) had high quantities of this species and were reported as hosts ( Bos 1977 b, CABIAbout CABI 2010, Escuer & Bello 2000). This nematode was also found on roots of non-specified wild grasses ( Bos 1977 b, CABIAbout CABI 2010). According to Bos (1977 b) two biotypes, one on cereals and the other on cereals and groundnuts, may be occurring in fields.
