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 anthracnose of mallow caused by Colletotrichum trifolii in China, the first report of Tomato chlorosis virus (ToCV) in tomato crops in Saudi Arabia and the first report of pineapple black rot caused by Ceratocystis paradoxa on pineapple in French Guiana.
