In order to identify plant-parasitic nematodes of eastern forests in Guilan province, soil and root samples were collected and the extracted nematodes were studied based on morphological and morphometric characters. Twenty eight species of plant parasitic nematodes were identified. A population of the genus Hoplotylus was recovered and identified as H. femina. The identification was also verified by partial sequencing of the large subunit ribosomal DNA (rDNA). In addition, two populations of the genus Malenchus were also recovered and based on morphological and morphometric characteristics were identified as M. solovjovae and M. acarayensis. The two species Hoplotylus femina and Malenchus solovjovae are new records for Iran.
