A little‐leaf disease of Eucalyptus tereticornis, E. grandis and E. globulus characterized by stunting of plants and considerable reduction in size of leaves and internodes, was recorded during survey of nurseries and plantations in Kerala State. The survey indicated that though the little leaf disease was widespread, its incidence was quite low. Transmission of the symptoms by sap and graft techniques was unsuccessful. However, positive fluorescence and staining of phloem tissues by Dienes' stain indicates that this disease may be caused by mycoplasmalike organisms (MLO).
