Presence of an entomopathogenic nematode, Steinernema feltiae (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) was recorded for first time in soil samples collected from grasslands and field crops in central part of Slovenia. Nematodes were isolated using Galleria-baiting technique (Bedding and Akhurst, 1975) and identified using molecular technique. Read following literature for more information
