Nearby fruit and vegetable fields in Islamabad, Pakistan were surveyed for phytoplasma infection. 'Candidatus Phytoplasma asteris' (Group 16SrI) was found infecting mango, citrus, loquat, geranium, periwinkle, radish, blackberry and potato. Results suggest that a polyphagous vector may be involved in phytoplasma transmission to these plant species, which are first host records of 16SrI phytoplasma infection in Pakistan.
