Foliar nematodes on Ostrich Fern

Does anyone have a photo of what this looks like? i have found nematodes on a hosta that I purchased this Spring and the OF's next to it have foliage that is browning out in the middle. They are in a somewhat sunny spot and we have had a drought so I don't want to kill them off if they are not infected.

I can't find a pic on the net of what they look like when infected.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

More likely it's environmental stress.
