The decreasing ability to attachment of Pasteuria penetrans spores on a field population of Meloidogyne javanica from Malawi and single egg mass lines of the same species from Crete was recorded in the laboratory. When the bacterial parasite does not provide sufficient control of the nematode, a selection of Pasteuria spores with high attachment potential against the target nematode might be an alternative for delaying the decrease of spore attachment ability.
