Abstract
The disease described in this article is of particular interest to farmers at the higher elevations where the climate is wet and cold for prolonged periods. Under such conditions tea, coffee and eucalyptus have been found infected, while the wide range of less important plants also attacked would indicate that the majority of broad leaved crops are potential host plants. So far the disease has only been observed in two of the higher parts of the Southern Highlands Province and on one plantation at the east end of the West Usambara Mountains, both in Tanganyika Territory, but its range may be much wider.
