First report of laurel wilt caused by Raffaelea lauricola on sassafras in Mississippi
Plant Disease 95 (11), 1479-1479
Abstract: During 2010, a sassafras (Sassafras albidum) tree growing in Mississippi, USA was observed with symptoms of wilting, including bronze colored leaves and dark staining in the xylem. The fungus Raffaelea lauricola was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on sequence analysis of the 28S rDNA. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation of redbay and sassafras plants and re-isolation.
