Trypanosomatids are widespread in several plant families and although most isolates have been classified as Phytomonas, other trypanosomatid genera can also infect plants. In order to assess the natural occurrence of non-Phytomonas trypanosomatids in plants we characterized 21 new trypanosomatid cultures, 18 from fruits and three from seeds of 17 plant species. The trypanosomatids from fruit and seeds were compared in terms of morphological, growth, biochemical and molecular features. The high… CONTINUE READING
