Brief

Poison-hemlock is a widely distributed biennial especially known for its toxic piperidine alkaloids that can poison livestock that eat this plant. In 2008, a powdery mildew was observed on poison-hemlock growing in coastal California. The causal agent was determined to be Erysiphe heraclei DC., previously unreported on this host in North America.
