Other plant-parasitic Aphelenchoides 

While the MPPA represent 95 % of the total reports, the other 10 species have been reported only from a limited number of plants ( Table 1). Noteworthy, some of them were reported on hosts with records of the MPPA species, and special attention should be paid in such instances for an accurate identification ( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3). Some plant genera could shelter a combination of the following species: A. blastopthorus  + A. subtenuis  on Narcissus  sp. ( Amaryllidaceae  ), A. blastopthorus  + A. fragariae  on Begonia  sp. ( Begoniaceae  ), A. blastopthorus  + A. fragariae  + A. ritzemabosi  + A. subtenuis  on Iris  sp. ( Iridaceae  ), A. fragariae  + A. ritzemabosi  + A. subtenuis  on Colchicum  sp. ( Colchicaceae  ) and A. ritzemabosi  + A. subtenuis  on Tulipa  sp. ( Liliaceae  ). Species reported from a limited number of plant species in particular locations, i.e. A. ensete  , A. nechaleos  and A. paranechaleos  , require more sampling and laboratory tests to confirm their specificity.
