The infection of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne sp. with entomopathogenic fungi and nematode-parasitic fungi. (I), Arrow with "a" was the eggs of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne sp. A, Beauveria bassiana; B,Metarhizium anisopliae; C,Lecanicillium psalliotae; D,Pochonia chlamydosporia; E,Paecilomyces lilacinus; F,Paecilomyces farinosus; G,Paecilomyces fumosoroseus; H,Metarhizium flavoviride; I,Nigrospora oryzae. A-F, H and I, bar = 30 μm. G, bar = 15 μm. All the eight tested entomopathogenic or nematode-parasitic fungi (A-H) were able to infect the eggs of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne sp. (II), The histogram shows the infection rate of 3 days. After 1 week, the infection rate of eight tested entomopathogenic or nematode-parasitic fungi ranged from 73% to 100%. The phytopathogenic fungus N. oryzae (I-I) that used as the negative control did not show any infection toward the eggs, so the infection rate was zero.
