Less common phytoplasmas infecting stone fruit trees
Journal of Plant Protection Research 51 (4), 435-440
Abstract: Prunus species plants can be infected by eight `Candidatus Phytoplasma' ( 'Ca. P.') species classified to eight distinctive taxonomic groups: `Ca. P. prunorum' (16SrX-B), `Ca. P. mali' (16SrX-A), `Ca. P. pyri' (16SrX-C), `Ca. P. asteris' (16SrI), `Ca. P. aurantifolia' (16SrII), `Ca. P. ziziphi' (16SrV), `Ca. P. fraxini' (16SrVII), `Ca. P. phoenicium' (16SrIX) and two potentially new species: `Ca. P. pruni' (16SrIII) and `Ca. P. solani' (16SrXII). These agents occur incidentally in orchards and their impact on stone fruit production is lower than `Candidatus Phytoplasma prunorum'. Hosts, geographic distribution, symptoms and insect vectors of these `Ca. P.' species, methods of their identification, and control management are reviewed.
