The life history of Criconemoides xenoplax is reported in detail. Eggs laid singly totalled 8-15 per adult female during 2-3 days under laboratory conditions. The life cycle took 25-34 days: 11-13 days for the egg stage, 3-5 for the second-stage larva, 4-7 for third-stage, 5-6 for fourth-stage and preoviposition period of adult 2-3 days. Embryonic and post-embryonic development, the egg and larval stages are described and figured. Best hosts for C. xenoplax are generally woody perennials. Highest population levels were attained on plum, apricot, grape and almond. The entire temperature range of 22-26 degrees C. is favorable for C. xenoplax and sandy soil more favorable for nematode multiplication than loam or silty loam. Soil with a pH of 7 gave a population increase higher than those of pH 3 and 5. Also increase at the highest soil moisture level (sticky point = 15.5%) was significantly greater than at soil moisture of 11.6% and 7.8%.
