Paulownia trees exhibiting symptoms similar to Paulownia Witches’-Broom disease were identified in three commercial plantations in Western Australia. PCR confirmed the presence of a phytoplasma and RFLP analysis produced patterns similar to ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma australiense’. This is the first report of this phytoplasma in Paulownia.
