Different developmental stages of Heterodera glycines and size measurements. H. glycines hatches as second-stage vermiform juveniles (J2 s), infects the host root and initiates feeding. Following infection, their body diameter increases resulting in development from a vermiform J2 into a saccate-shaped adult female. Width measurements were made at the maximum diameter. Mean ± SEM, n = 3. Scale bars, 10 µm
