A new species of plant parasitic nematode, Belonolaimus lineatus, was found associated with declining sugarcane in Isabela, P.R. This species is mainly characterized by the presence of four incisures in the lateral fields and longitudinal striae on the neck region. A posterior circle of eight labial papillae is illustrated, the first report of such structures in the genus Belonolaimus.
