Is anyone aware of a diagnostic tool (serology?, bioassay?) for 
rhododendron necrotic ringspot virus?  It produces lovely brown concentric 
ringspots on mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia) plants in our landscape.  
I had an inquiry about how best to detect or confirm the presence of this 
virus in suspect rhododendrons.
