From 2011 to 2012, we collected Scutellonema commune
from the rhizosphere soil of coconut ( cocos nucifera
L.) and Scutellonema magniphasma
from the rhizosphere soil of Rosa chinensis
in Shenyang, China. S. commune
was characterized by rounded scutella, which was varied from two annules anterior to the anus and five annules posterior. The lateral field was not areolated at the level of scutella. S. magniphasma
was characterized by varying scutellum, about 7.0 μm in diameter, in position from four annules posterior to four annules anterior to the anus, and areolated at the level of the scutellum.
