Caenorhabditis n. sp. 3 (PS1010, RGD1, RGD2) is associated with palm and sugarcane weevils, Rhynchophorus palmarum and Metamasius hemipterus (Curculionidae) in Trinidad and Florida. The nematodes propagate on decomposing tissue of coconut palms and sugar cane in the galleries of the weevils (R. Giblin-Davis, pers. comm.). Dauer larvae wave and are transported by adult weevils. The association is probably phoretic, although C. n. sp. 3 can develop on dead weevils.

Current status

6 Oct 2010: The latest changes to the assembly are due to be added to WormBase in release WS221.

6 Oct 2010: Erich is finalizing the GenBank submission for sp. 3, but once this is done, we are happy to turn the ownership of the genome sequence to WormBase. - Paul Sternberg.
