Abstract

Trichodorid species, in general, are root ectoparasites, usually aggregating at the root tip. They possess a long stylet, called an onchiostyle, with which they pierce plant cells. They feed by repeated thrusts of the onchiostyle into epidermal cells and, root hairs, with a preference for the meristemic tissue near the tip of the growing root.
