Abstract

Examination of paratypes of five species of Xiphinema from India described by Singh and Khan (1998) led to the following conclusions: X. larliani appears a valid species close to X. simillimum. The other four species are considered junior synonyms, X. digicaudatum of X. brasiliense; X. gracilicaudatum of X. radicicola; X. arunachalense of X. brevicollum [X. brevicolle]; X. pruni of X. basiri. Complementary morphological data, measurements and illustrations based on the paratypes are given for the five species.
