Hosts

Important note about the classification of host plants in GD:
Categories have been assigned by the EPPO Secretariat on the basis of available data at the time of entry. They correspond to a qualitative evaluation of the importance of the host plant for the pest concerned and remain indicative only.
Further explanation of categories is available in the guide.

* Cifuentes-Arenas JC, Beattie GAC, Peña L, Aparecido Lopes S (2019) Murraya paniculata and Swinglea glutinosa as Short-Term Transient Hosts of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’ and Implications for the Spread of Huanglongbing. Phytopathology 109:12, 2064-2073. DOI: 10.1094/PHYTO-06-19-0216-R
------- Infections in M. paniculata were transient. Very few insects that successfully acquired Las from M. paniculata were able to transmit the pathogen to healthy citrus.  However these plants could eventually serve as carriers of Las to regions currently free from HLB.

Rutaceae (1RUTF) Host
Swinglea glutinosa (SWNGL) Host
