Identification of Trichodorids

  • Wilfrida Decraemer
Part of the Nato ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 7)


A study on the morphometrie variability and value of the characters used for species differentiation was completed forTrichodorus Cobb, 1913 and Paratrichodorus Siddiqi, 1974, the two largest genera of the Trichodoridae. Details of this investigation will appear in two separate papers (Decraemer, in preparation).
