Bursaphelenchus parantoniae n. sp. isolated in Ningbo, China, from packaging wood made of Pinus sp. imported from Belgium, is described. It is characterised by a slim body (a = 32.6-51), lateral field with two lines, excretory pore located ca one metacorpal length posterior to median bulb, spicules stout and arcuate with triangular rostrum and flattened cucullus, and seven caudal papillae arranged as a single midventral precloacal papilla, one adcloacal pair and two postcloacal pairs. The vagina is inclined anteriorly, a vulval flap is present, the post-uterine branch extends for more than half of the vulva-anus distance, and the female tail is conical with a hyaline region and bluntly rounded terminus. Phylogenetic analyses showed that B. parantoniae n. sp. clusters with the hylobianum-group and appears close to B. antoniae, B. chengi, B. hylobianum and B. niphades. The new species is distinguished from these species by morphology, ITS-RFLP patterns and molecular characters.
