We’ve selected a few of the latest new geographic, host and species records for plant pests and diseases from CAB Abstracts. Records this fortnight include Deladenus cocophilus, an entomoparasitic nematode in infested coconut fruits from Pakistan, an association of a DNA virus with grapevines affected by red blotch disease in California and Bambusananus cuihuashanensis, a new bamboo-feeding leafhopper species of Athysanini from Shaanxi, China.
