Abstract: Five phytoplasma diseases are known in New Zealand. Of these, phormium yellow leaf, strawberry lethal yellows, cordyline sudden decline, and coprosma lethal decline are associated with a single phytoplasma species, `Candidatus Phytoplasma australiense'. The fifth, poinsettia branch-inducing phytoplasma is the only exotic phytoplasma.
