The Eucalyptus canker pathogen Holocryphia eucalypti on Eucalyptus in New Zealand
Australasian Plant Disease Notes 5 (1), 5-8
Abstract: Holocryphia eucalypti is an opportunistic canker pathogen of Eucalyptus and Corymbia spp. (Myrtaceae, Myrtales) in Australia and South Africa. It is also known in Australia on Tibouchina trees (Melastomataceae, Myrtales). Using DNA sequence comparisons and morphological characterisation, we show for the first time that H. eucalypti is present in New Zealand on Eucalyptus spp.
