Generic Groupings in Criconematina

Placing species of Criconematina into groups using morphological characteristics has been difficult. Molecular and morphological approaches are in agreement there is sufficient evidence to support the suborder as a natural or monophyletic group. Below the suborder, however, taxonomic relationships are obscure. As an aid for organization and identification we are presenting several approaches to interpreting classification and identification in Criconematina.
