Seemadua, Suneerat and Bhasabutra, Tharntip and Beasley, Dean R. and Tan, Yu Pei and Shivas, Roger G. (2012) A new host genus and species (Afzelia xylocarpa) for Phakopsora pachyrhizi found in Thailand. Australasian Plant Disease Notes, 7 (1). pp. 125-126.


Leaves of Afzelia xylocarpa infected with rust were collected from the National Corn and Sorghum Research Centre, Rai Suwan, Nakhon Ratchasima, north-eastern Thailand in January 2011. The rust was identified as Phakopsora pachyrhizi based on morphological and DNA sequence data. Afzelia xylocarpa represents a new host genus and species for this rust fungus, which is commonly known as Asian soybean rust.
