Correction to: Journal of General Plant Pathology (2018) 84:230–236

The authors would like to correct the errors in the publication of the original article.

The first eight sentences under the subheading “PCR, cloning, and sequencing” in the “Materials and methods” section contained errors in the primer sequences and in the one of the reference citations.

The sentences should read as:

“The ribosomal DNA sequences (rDNA) including two ITS and 5.8S ribosomal RNA were amplified using the primers of Ferris et al. (1993): forward (CGTAACAAGGTAGCTGTAG) and reverse (TCCTCCGCTAAATGATATG). Partial sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene (cytb) were amplified using primers INRAcytbL (GGGTGTGGCCTTGTTATTTC) and INRAcytbR (ACCAGCTAAAACCCCATCCT) (Picard et al. 2007).”

The below reference should be included in the reference list.
