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 a new report of Cycas revoluta leaf necrosis by Phoma herbarum from Pakistan, the first report of Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae causing bacterial leaf blight on Miscanthus × giganteus in the Republic of Korea, and new and earlier unnoted mealybugs and felt scale species from Morocco.
