Byull. glavn. bot. Sada. Moskva 62: 83-86
Sepforia unedonis attacks mainly Arbutus unedo in parks of the S. Crimea. A disease, observed particularly on A. andrachne in the Nikita Garden in 1957-59, was characterized by reddish leaf spots or stripes which became brown or almost black in the autumn. No fungi could be seen except occasionally black saprophytic deposits of Capnodium sp. on old, dry leaves.
