The Aphelenchoides sp. studied for several years at Rutgers University, U.S.A., and formerly thought to be A. sacchari or A. dactylocercus is described as Aphelenchoides rutgersi n. sp. Some variants resemble A. cibolensis, the male of which is also described. The body length, gonad length and tail shape of females, the progeny of single females cultured on Pyrenochaeta terrestris or Botrytis cinerea, vary greatly according to type and age of culture. Small but consistent differences distinguish A. rutgersi from the above species. The female has three lateral incisures, a short post-vulval sac about one and a half vulval body-widths long and a conoid tail about three anal body-widths long. The shape of the tail terminus is variable but usually has a short ventral mucro. The stylet is 10 μm long. Males are very rare.
