Bursaphelenchus chengi sp. n. is described and illustrated. Dauer juveniles were isolated from imported wood packaging materials from Taiwan to Nanjing Port, China. Bursaphelenchus chengi sp. n. was reared and maintained on Petri dish cultures of the fungus Botrytis cinerea. The new species is characterised by the medium body size in both sexes, the presence of only two incisures in the lateral field and the robust and strongly curved spicules. The spicule lamina is angular distally, the rostrum digitate and the condylus rounded. The tail is arcuate with a pointed terminus. The bursa is usually truncate with the posterior margin indented in some specimens or rounded with a fine axial point. Females have a small vulval flap formed by a short extension of the cuticle of the anterior lip, and a conical tail that gradually tapers to an almost straight or slightly recurved, pointed or rounded terminus. Because of the presence of two lateral lines, similar spicule shape, tapering female tail and the presence of a small vulval flap, B. chengi sp. n. should be grouped in the abietinus-group sensu Braasch. together with B. abietinus, B. antoniae, B. hellenicus, B. hylobianum and B. rainulfi. ITS-RFLP profiles support the proposal of the new species, and phylogenetic analysis of the 28S rDNA D2/D3 domain sequence places it close to B. antoniae and other species of the abietinus-group.
