Overview Code created in: 2002-11-09
- EPPO Code: ERWICH
- Preferred name: Erwinia chrysanthemi
- Authority: Burkholder, McFadden & Dimock
Erwinia chrysanthemi is a dated name for a disease that is currently considered to consist of several distinct species in the genera Dickeya and Musicola. As information was attached to this name in the database, the code ERWICH has not been deactivated for the moment, as past data needs to be re-assessed to see if it can be reattributed to other species, in particular to Dickyea chrysanthemi which is a quarantine pest in some countries.
