Review

Accurate and timely reports of new host-fungus records are essential for diagnostics and identification, management, and prevention of plant diseases. The authors provide a guide to sources of host-fungus records, discuss venues for publishing new records, and review the information important in a new record, including deposition of voucher specimens. They appeal to plant health professionals to increase their efforts of discovering, documenting, and reporting new records.
