Sclerotinia Blight of Stephanotis Flowers. Robert D. Raabe, Professor, Department of Plant Pathology, University of California, Berkeley 94720; Phytopathology 61:1524-1525. DOI: 10.1094/Phyto-61-1524.

A flower blight of Stephanotis floribunda was found resulting from infection by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. The symptoms included brown-to-tan spots and some distortion of the flowers, and were similar to those reported on this plant resulting from infection by the closely related fungus, Botrytis elliptica.
