Cucurbita foetidissima is a keystone species in the arid grasslands of the South Plains. Have seen no evidence of squash disease affecting them. If i do i will certainly document it and add to your project.

Dear Ellen,

Thank you! This is very helpful. One of the goals of the project is to get a better idea of the geographic distributions of different cucurbit diseases, as well as insects that may vector them (and the good insects that pollinate them). Any contributions of any cucurbits or any insects in any place are most welcome.
