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 the first report of the dagger nematode in citrus orchards in Morocco, the first report of Neofusicoccum mangiferae causing rachis necrosis and inflorescence blight of mango in Puerto Rico and new records of three Ramichloridium species on banana leaves in Panama and Taiwan.
