Occurrence - .A disease resembling LY was recorded from Grand Cayman in 1834 (Fawcett, W. (1891) Report on the coconut disease at Montego Bay. Bulletin of the Botanical Department (Jamaica) 23: 2). It has therefore been stated that LY "originated from the Cayman Islands" (Dollet, 1999) but that is not proved. The islands were visited by various LY researchers from Jamaica in the 60s and 70s (Carter ? Grylls? Heinze? Schuiling ?) but no information has been unearthed to confirm the LY status then or now.
