First report of laurel wilt disease caused by Raffaelea lauricola on camphor in Florida and Georgia
Plant Disease 93 (2), 198-198
Abstract: Since 2003, Laurel wilt, caused by Raffaelea lauricola, has caused widespread mortality of redbay (Persea borbonia) in the south-eastern USA. Since 2007, wilted shoots and branch dieback have been observed in several ornamental camphor trees (Cinnamomum camphora) in Georgia and Florida, USA, in areas with redbay mortality due to laurel wilt. The fungus R. lauricola was isolated from the diseased trees. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and rDNA sequence analysis.
