'Candidatus Phytoplasma asteris'(PHYPAS)

Distribution details in United Kingdom

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 1976: Absent, invalid record
From CABI Disease map 056 (1976): Absent, unreliable record
The CABI map record refers back to an old finding of strawberry green petal in England. This is now considered to be a distinct phytoplasma, different from the American aster yellows which attacks strawberry in North America. So the record is based on what can retrospectively be seen to be a misidentification.
