Distribution details in South Africa

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 1992: Absent, invalid record
From CABI Disease map 752 (1998): Absent, invalid record
From NPPO: Absent, invalid record
The record in the EPPO data sheet is derived from Németh's manual of Virus Diseases of Fruit Trees, which does not however indicate its origin. It is not confirmed by the South African Plant Protection Service.

Since the pathogen has now been redefined as European stonefruit yellows phytoplasma, this record should certainly be regarded as erroneous.
