This is very strange.  All the crops Radopholus similis attacks seem  
to be sub-tropical and tropical, like banana, avocado, coconut,  
coffee, sugar cane.

  In the U.S., it attacks citrus in Florida, but not in California.

  It makes no sense for it to be present in other states of the U.S.

  And why would it be present in England and the Netherlands?  No  
bananas grow there except perhaps for a few decorative ones in private

Canada - where I am sure there are none of these nematodes.

In U.S., only the Alaska and California are free from it.
In Australia, only the Victoria and Tasmania are free from it.
