Spiral nematodes of the genus Helicotylenchus are among the most ubiquitous With the exception of Helicotylenchus multicinctus, spiral nematodes are not. 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.

Topotypes; remainder specimens from banana from Samoa Island.
Adults in relaxed body posture. Reproduced from Siddiqi MR, Taxonomic Tree Top of page Domain: Description Top of page Adult Females Body of heat-killed specimens arcuate or C-shaped; annules distinct, lateral field with helicitylenchus incisures, not areolated.
Lip region hemispherical, with annuli; framework heavily sclerotized; cephalids usually indistinct. Oesophagus with rounded metacorpus, and glandular part overlapping intestine ventrally, with subventral glands posterior to dorsal.
Excretory pore at level of oesophago-intestinal junction; hemizonid body annules anterior to it. Genital apparatus composed of two symmetrical ovaries; sometimes the posterior ovary may appear reduced, but is still functional.
Spermathecae rounded, usually filled with sperms. Vulva is a depressed transverse slit on ventral side of the body. Tail slightly tapering, with anus marked by a slight depression; terminus annulated, hemispherical in shape, with dorsal margin more curved than ventral; cuticular rings on ventral side.
Phasmids punctate, annuli anterior to anus. Adult Males Abundant, similar to females, except for genital characters. Caudal alae crenate, enveloping tail but not protruding beyond it in lateral view.
Distribution Table Top of page The distribution in this summary table is based on all the information available. It has also been recorded to have a wide host range Goodey et al. In Cuba, the nematode helioctylenchus detected in 32 host plants, including beets, common beans, carrots, cowpeas, garlic, hairy cotton, head cabbages, lettuces, melons, peas, rape and watermelons Stoyanov, Symptoms Top of page The damage symptoms are similar to those caused by other serious root endoparasites of the family Pratylenchidae, both on banana plants and plantains.
The nematode attacks the outer cortical part of the root causing characteristic necrotic lesions, which are at first helicottylenchus in colour and then turn reddish-brown to black.
