First report of laurel wilt, caused by Raffaelea lauricola, on redbay (Persea borbonia) in Texas
Plant Disease 100 (7), 1502-1502
Abstract: During 2015, redbay trees (Persea borbonia) growing in Texas were observed with wilt-like symptoms (i.e., limp and dead leaves, and streaks of black discoloration in the xylem) and small insect entrance holes characteristic of Xyleborus glabratus and discolored wood. The fungus Raffaelea lauricola was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on DNA sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
