First report of laurel wilt disease caused by Raffaelea lauricola on swamp bay in Louisiana
Plant Disease 103 (7), 1777-1777
Abstract: During 2018, swamp bay trees (Persea palustris) growing in Louisiana, U.S. were observed with symptoms of black vascular discoloration in the sapwood. The fungus Raffaelea lauricola was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and DNA sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation.
