Abstract : The presence of Phytomonas spp. in crops such as coconut and on palm, can have devastating consequences. These infections inflict economic losses, and carry important ecological implications through intensive insecticide treatments. The term "Phytomonas" as a genus has been used since 1909 [1] to classify trypanosomatids isolated from a wide variety of plants. This genus includes three main groups according to the location of the organism in the plant: phloem-restricted, latex and fruit isolates. However, the taxonomy of trypanosomatids isolated from plants is obscure, more especially since several monoxenous genera of "insect trypanosomatids" can multiply in fruit, and are often misidentified as Phytomonas. Even more obscure are the genomics of these parasites, for which neither the ploidy, nor the genome size, nor the chromosome number, are known. (Résumé d'auteur)
