Cylindrocarpon liriodendri was isolated from the roots of diseased own-rooted grapevines (Vitis vinifera cv. Pinot Noir) from the Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia. Sequencing of the ß-tubulin 2 gene established the identity of the pathogen as C. liriodendri. Soil/root inoculation of potted V. vinifera cv. Chardonnay vines resulted in symptoms typical of black-foot disease. This study has established the pathogenicity of an Australian isolate of C. liriodendri on V. vinifera.
