In the course of a research project during 2008-09, diseases of mulberry shoots in Izadshahr (Mazandaran), Astaneh Ashrafieh (Guilan) were investigated. The results showed that phloeospora leaf-spot caused by Phloeospora maculans on Morus species is a widespread disease in the above mentioned cities. Also, diatrype die-back on white mulberry, caused by Diatrype stigma, is a rather important disease in Astaneh Ashrafieh. A full account of the symptoms of the diseases and also details of their causal agents are presented here. Malberry is a new host for Cytospora cincta and Diatrype stigma in Iran.
