Abstract

Photo above shows healthy periwinkle on left and virescence-affected periwinkle on right; plant on right was exposed to beet leafhopper (Circulifer tenellus) that had previously fed on another virescence-affected periwinkle. Photo below shows periwinkle plant that developed virescence after exposure to infective beet leafhopper; not variation in severity of symphotoms.
