Meloidogyne enterolobii Yang and Eisenback, 1983, known colloquially as the guava root-knot nematode or the pacara earpod tree root-knot nematode (Yang and Eisenback, 1983), is an emerging threat due to its global distribution, wide host range, and the ability to reproduce on tomato genotypes carrying Mi resistance genes (Moens et al., 2009; Castagnone-Sereno, 2012). Commercial guava orchards have been destroyed in the São Francisco river Valley, northeastern Brazil, by the Meloidogyne enterolobii nematode but to date no effective control has been identified.
