EPPO Reporting Service (2008/013) : 'Candidatus Phytoplasma solani' is consistently associated with a disease called maize redness in Serbia. Maize redness was first observed in 1957 in the Banat region, and epidemic phases were observed in the late 1950s-early 1960s, and 40 years later in the late 1990s-early 2000s. It is suspected that Reptalus panzeri is a vector.
