The reniform nematode (Rotylenchulus reniformis Linford & Oliveira) has been observed on a wide range of food crops in the Gold Coast, and can maintain itself under fallow conditions on at least two common weeds. Measurements differ slightly from those given by LINFORD and OLIVEIRA, but it is considered that the same species is involved, the differences being accounted for by development on a different host. The life-cycle appears to be as short, or a little shorter than, LINFORD and OLIVEIRA'S theoretical minimum period of 25 days. Susceptible and resistant host species have been noted, and a particularly heavy infestation on tomato is recorded.
