Abstract
An experiment is described in which pyrethrum and chrysanthemum plants were inoculated with chrysanthemum leaf eelworm (Apltelenchoides ritzemabosi). After II weeks only one Aphelenclzoides specimen was recovered from pyrethrum, while a dense population was present on chrysanthemum. This result proves that pyrethrum is not a suitable host for the chrysanthemum leaf eelworm.
