Comments
Oskay et al. (2020) considered that the report from Kizikelashvili (1987) probably referred to a Dothistroma sp. (not L. acicola - most probably D. septosporum). However, they noted that the presence of L. acicola in Georgia is probable as there is an unpublished molecular confirmation of the pathogen in Georgia.
