Remarks. The Iranian population of Pratylenchus   sp. resembles P. z e a e, sharing most morphological and morphometric characters, but has some differences in tail shape (conoid and terminating in a bluntly rounded end vs narrowly rounded to subacute and bluntly pointed terminus) and lower value of c ´ (2 vs 2.1–3) (Hashim 1983), (2 vs 3–3.5) (Ryss 1988), (2 vs 2–4) (Van den Berg & Quénéhervé 2000). However, the anal body diameter in Pratylenchus   sp. is wider than P. z e a e and the tail is not tapered abruptly at anus level.
