DescriptionPhytophthora lateralis causes root rot of Port-Orford cedar (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana; POC) in native forests of northwest California and southwest Oregon and in landscape plantings of horticultural Chamaecyparis cultivars in the western US and Europe. In spring 2015, following observations of mortality amongst plant groups in two horticultural nurseries in Oregon, P. lateralis was isolated from the roots of two additional conifer species: Microbiota decussata and Juniperus communis. Species identification was confirmed by sequencing the ITS region using ITS4 and ITS6 primers. To substantiate the extended host range of P. lateralis, we conducted Koch´s Postulates with the recovered nursery isolates on potted Juniperus and Microbiota plants.
