False Root Knot Nematode

Nematodes in the genus Nacobbus produce galls that are similar in appearance to those caused by root-knot nematodes. If diagnosis is primarily based on field symptoms, it is often erroneously assumed that crop damage caused by Nacobbus species is due to Meloidogyne species. For this reason, Nacobbus species are referred to as false root-knot nematodes.
