In the article ``Interaction of Entomopathogenic Nematodes (Steinermatidae) with Selected Species of Ixodid Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae)'' by Katherine M. Kocan, Marsha S. Pidherney, Edmour F. Blouin, P. L. Claypool, Michael Samish, and Itamar Glazer, which appeared in the July 1998 issue, pp. 514-520, the name of the nematode Steinernema riobravis (Cabanillas, Poinar & Raulston) was misspelled and incomplete throughout. In addition, the following reference is included: Cabanillas, H. E., G. O. Poinar, Jr., and J. R. Raulston. 1994. Steinernema riobravis n. sp. (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) from Texas. Fundam. Appl. Nematol. 17: 123-131. The authors apologize for the error.
