General Comments

Fungal pest of a large number of crops largely limited to south-western USA and northern Mexico. The climate of the UK and conditions in protected cultivation are unlikely to be suitable for the pest and it is of low phytosanitary risk to the UK. Southern European countries may be at greater risk.
