Abstract
This survey presents the first precise records of Leucomigus candidatus candidatus (Pallas, 1781) in Romania, confirming thus the presence of this species almost a century after its first and single record. Furthermore, ecology, habitat preference and distribution are discussed. We illustrate this taxon with high quality macro photographs, including the male genitalia with the everted and inflated endophallus. Comparative plates with similar-looking species are provided. New localities from Roma

Abstract
ABSTRACT Filamentous Chloroflexota are abundant in activated sludge wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) worldwide and are occasionally associated with poor solid-liquid separation or foaming, but most of the abundant lineages remain undescribed. Here, we present a comprehensive overview of Chloroflexota abundant in WWTPs worldwide, using high-quality metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) and 16S rRNA amplicon data from 740 Danish and global WWTPs. Many novel taxa were descri

An inhibitor-monitorable single-tube duplex quantitative real-time PCR assay for the detection of Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus

Abstract
Huanglongbing (HLB) is a citrus infectious disease caused by Candidatus Liberibacters spp. Recently, it has begun to spread rapidly worldwide, causing significant losses to the citrus industry. Early diagnosis of HLB relies on quantitative real-time PCR assays. However, the PCR inhibitors found in the nucleic acid extracted from plant materials pose challenges for PCR assays because they may result in false-negative results. Internal standard (IS) can be introduced to establish a single-tube du

Comparative genomics of symbiotic Photobacterium using highly contiguous genome assemblies from long read sequences

Names
“Photobacterium acropomis”
Abstract
This study presents the assembly and comparative genomic analysis of luminous Photobacterium strains isolated from the light organs of 12 fish species using Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) sequencing. The majority of assemblies achieved chromosome-level continuity, consisting of one large (>3 Mbp) and one small (~1.5 Mbp) contig, with near complete BUSCO scores along with varying plasmid sequences.

Accumulation and Transmission of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ Haplotypes by the Nymphs of Two Psyllid Vectors

“Liberibacter solanacearum”
Abstract
‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ (Lso) is a plant pathogenic bacterium transmitted by psyllids that causes significant agricultural damage. Several Lso haplotypes have been reported. Among them, LsoA and LsoB are transmitted by the potato psyllid Bactericera cockerelli and infect solanaceous crops, and LsoD is transmitted by the carrot psyllid B. trigonica and infects apiaceous crops. Several studies evaluated the transmission of these haplotypes by adult psyllids. However, fewer data are

Exploration of biotic inducers through seed infiltration technique for the management of phyllody in sesame caused by Candidatus Phytoplasma

Names
Ca. Phytoplasma
Abstract
This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of biotic inducers for the management of phyllody disease in sesame, as well as in analyzing the defense enzyme activity. The field trial experiments were conducted with the biotic inducers [salicylic acid (SA), methyl jasmonate (MeJA), and beta amino butyric acid (BABA)] in individually (50 ppm, 100 ppm and 150 ppm) and in combination. Concerning biotic inducers, SA 50 / 100 ppm pre-seed treatment and exogenous application at 30th, 45th and 60th DAS res
