Nineteen species of Meloidogyne have been reported from coffee worldwide as
of 2019 (Le et al., 2019).
Feeding site establishment and
development typical of genus.
Egg masses within galled coffee roots.
Meloidogyne moensi causes inconspicuous galls or slight
swellings on coffee roots. (Fig. 2n). Nutrient absorption is compromised
by the infected root system, leading to stunting and chlorosis of the host
plant. Coffee roots infected by have relatively small galls (1 â€“ 2 mm diam.),
each gall containing several females with egg masses retained inside the
gall (Le et al., 2019).
