|Syn.:||Tylenchus (Tylenchorhynchus) cylindricus
(Cobb, 1913) Filipjev, 1934
Anguillulina cylindrica (Cobb, 1913) Thorne, 1935
Tylenchorhynchus cylindricus can be distinguished by the hemispherical, definitely set-off lip region, bearing 5 annules, by the lateral fields with four lines, and by the subcylindrical tail without striations around the terminus. Specimens of this species were examined from the following localities: soil around Prunus sp. at Cathedral City, California; soil from Arvin, Victorville, Yuma Mesa, Modesto, and Stockton, California; soil around shadscale at Mosida, Utah and soil around juniper at Duchesne, Utah.
This species was synonymized with dubius by Filipjev in 1936.
He recognized the genus Tylenchorhynchus Cobb (1913), but assumed
that the type of the genus was a synonym of dubius. During
1952 and subsequently, a large number of specimens collected in the Netherlands
and in England have been examined. In this material were large numbers
of a species of Tylenchorhynchus that are without doubt dubius,
since they correspond in all respects to the specimens illustrated by Goodey
as this species. In addition, with only two exceptions, the species
of Tylenchorhynchus encountered in the Netherlands appear to be
distinct from those so far collected in the United States. In the
author's opinion there can be no doubt that dubius of Bütschli
and cylindricus of Cobb are separate and distinct species and it
is therefore necessary to recognize cylindricus as the type species
of the genus Tylenchorhynchus.
