Remarks. Description not included in above reference. Pratylenchus mediterraneus   differs from the closely related species P. thornei   by having a shorter stylet and the presence of males. These differences are supported by molecular analysis of the D 3 expansion of the 26 S ribosomal genes, which indicated that P. mediterraneus   and P. thornei   sequences have differences in some crucial nucleotide positions, strongly indicating that P. mediterraneus   should be maintained as a valid species ( De Luca et al. 2004).
