Xiphinema insigne is a plant pathogenic nematode infecting tea. They are known to infect cacao trees.[1]


They are known to live in the Philippines.[1] It also resides in China, where it is the most common of all of the Xiphinema nematodes.[2]


There is a great deal of interspecies variation within the Xiphinema insigne population, generally variations are due to, or at least correlate with, geographical or climate differences.[2]
