Rotylenchulinae (Husain & Khan, 1977)
Acontylinae (Fotedar & Handoo, 1978)
Morphology and Anatomy:
- Body of mature females swollen or kidney shaped.
- Lip region not as high as in Hoplolaiminae.
- Esophageal glands enlarged into a long lobe overlapping the intestine, mostly laterally.
- Rotylenchulinae are sessile, semi-endoparasites and deposit their eggs in a gelatinous matrix, whereas Hoplolaiminae are ectoparasites or migratory semi-endoparasites and
deposit their eggs free in the soil.
