The role of entomopathogenic nematodes may be important against different insect pest in the Integrated Pest Management.These nematodes can be found in almost all soil type.The isolation of ento- mopathogenic nematodes from soils is very easy by different trapping methods but its identification is not so evident.These nematodes are composed of three,Steinernema,Neosteinernema and Heterorhabditis genus with currently 25,1 and 8 species,respectively.There is no complete identification key to these species in abroad and in Hungary for this reason a key is made to the recently described entomopathogenic nematodes with the measurements of infective juveniles in Tables 1.and 2.As the research on entomopa- thogenic nematodes is very intensive these days,several new species will be described in the future.
