The Root-Knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita was identified morphologically from diseased Bitter Melon root samples taken from a farm at Buckley Road, Humpty Doo, Darwin. Meloidogyne species have been recorded from the Northern Territory on various hosts including bitter melon, but none were identified to species, so this is the first report confirming Meloidogyne incognita on Bitter Melon from the Northern Territory, Australia.
