Records this fortnight include the first report of fruit rot caused by Botryosphaeria dothidea on European pear in Italy, the first report of soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) on tobacco in Henan, central China and the taxonomic status of the Bemisia tabaci complex with a reassessment of the number of its constituent species.
