    Dead and dying American elms (Ulmus americana) and cedar elms (U. crassifolia) were observed on the Delta Experimental Forest, Stoneville, Mississippi, and in Desha County, Arkansas, near the Mississippi River (about 30 miles northwest of the experimental forest) during August 1967. The only fungus consistently isolated from these diseased trees belonged to the genus Cephalosporium as described by Corda (1) and McKenzie and Johnson (3). This is believed to be the first report of the fungus wilt in the Midsouth.
