Nematodes of the genus Xiphinema (family Longidoridae) are economically important plant pests, some of them known as vectors of nepo-viruses [13]. Accurate identification of Xiphinema spp. is important in regard to their virus transmission capability. Nine species of the genus Xiphinema are reported so far from Romania. New information on the morphology and distribution of several Xiphinema species recovered from different crops and regions of Romania is provided. Soil samples were collected at a depth of 20-40 cm in the rhizosphere of various plants: grapevine, peach, apricot, alfalfa, strawberry. Based on the morphological and morphometrical characters the following species were identified: Xiphinema italiae Meyl, 1953, X. vuittenezi Luc, Lima, Weischer et Flegg, 1964, X. pachtaicum (Tulaganov, 1938) Kirjanova, 1951, X. simile Lamberti, Choleva et Agostinelli, 1983, X. taylori Lamberti, Ciancio, Agostinelli et Coiro, 1992 and X. parasimile Barsi et Lamberti, 2004. Xiphinema parasimile represents a new geographical record.
