A new Gloeosporium disease of the spice bush (Benzoin aestivale) is recorded on both fruits and tender leaves. The spice bush Gloeosporium is an active parasite. The spice bush Gloeosporium is the same as Gloeosporium officinale E. &. E. from the sassafras (Sassafras variifolium) as proved by cross inoculations. Both the Gloesporium from the spice bush and Gloeosporium officinale appear to be the same as Gloeosporum fructigenum Berk. which causes the bitter rot of the apple, since each may infect both the apple and the sweet pea.
