Abstract

Pumpkin plants (Cucurbita maxima and C. moschata) with pumpkin yellow leaf curl (PYLC) disease were observed at production fields in Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Diseased samples were positive for a phytoplasma indistinguishable from Candidatus Phytoplasma australiense, the phytoplasma associated with papaya dieback and strawberry lethal yellows. This is the first time Candidatus Phytoplasma australiense has been detected in pumpkin.
