Identification of Heterorhabditis (Nematoda : Heterorhabiditidae) from California with a new species isolated from the larvae of the ghost moth Hepialus californicus (Lepidoptera : Hepialidae) from the Bodega Bay Natural Reserve






Fundamental and Applied Nematology 19(6): 585-592

Identification of Heterorhabditis (Nematoda : Heterorhabiditidae) from California with a new species isolated from the larvae of the ghost moth Hepialus californicus (Lepidoptera : Hepialidae) from the Bodega Bay Natural Reserve

Classical taxonomy together with cross-breeding tests and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD's) were used to detect morphological and genetic variation between populations of Heterorhabditis from California. A new species, Heterorhabditis hepialus sp. nov., recovered from ghost moth caterpillars (Hepialis californicus) in Bodega Bay, California, USA is herein described and illustrated.
