About Caenorhabditis becei

Caenorhabditis becei (formerly Caenorhabditis sp. 29) was formally described by Stevens et al in 2019. It is a member of the Japonica group in the Caenorhabditis genus; molecular data suggest its closest known relatives to be C. nouraguensis, C. yunquensis, C. macrosperma, C. waitukubuli, and C. panamensis. It reproduces through males and females. The species type isolate was collected from a rotting flower on Barro Colorado Island, Panama in 2012.
