Sydowia 57 (2): 223-232.
The plasmodiophorid Sorosphaera viticola sp. nov. has been found in roots of Vitis riparia × V. berlandieri rootstocks in the German Rheingau. The species is described on the basis of light- and electron-micrographs. Sorosphaera viticola is distinguished from other species of this genus by its host, by form and size of its resting spores and that it does not cause hypertrophies in the host.
