This is the first report of endospores of Pasteuria penetrans and P. nishizawae isolates binding to juveniles of Meloidogyne chitwoodi and M. fallax. The patterns of endospore attachment to M. chitwoodi and M. fallax compared with the related M. hapla suggest that there are differences amongst these three temperate root-knot nematode species. Intraspecific variability in attachment of P. penetrans to juveniles of M. chitwoodi was demonstrated.
