Quambalaria shoot blight is an infection by the fungal pathogen Quambalaria pitereka, (previously Ramularia pitereka) that damages new shoots and leaves, affecting growth and form in spotted gums (Corymbia species). Spotted gum species and provenances differ in their susceptibility to the fungus and the disease causes most damage in wetter conditions.
