The damage symptoms are similar to those caused by other serious root endoparasites of the family Pratylenchidae, both on banana plants and plantains. The life cycle and mating behavior of Helicotylenchus multicinctus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) were observed in vitro on excised roots of Musa cavendishii in.
