    Symptoms of unknown aetiology on Rhododendron hybridum were observed in the Czech Republic in 2010. The infected plant had malformed leaves, with irregular shaped edges, mosaic, leaf tip necrosis and multiple axillary shoots with smaller leaves. Transmission electron microscopy showed phytoplasma-like bodies in phloem cells of the symptomatic plant. Phytoplasma presence was confirmed by PCR using phytoplasma-specific, universal and group-specific primer pairs. RFLP analysis of 16S rDNA enabled classification of the detected phytoplasma into the aster yellows subgroup I-C. Sequence analysis of the 16S-23S ribosomal operon of the amplified phytoplasma genome from the infected rhododendron plant (1724bp) confirmed the closest relationship with the Czech Echinacea purpurea phyllody phytoplasma. These data suggest Rhododendron hybridum is a new host for the aster yellows phytoplasma subgroup 16SrI-C in the Czech Republic and worldwide.
