Needle damage due to infection by Hypoderma lethale was scored in progeny test plantations of slash and loblolly pines in 2 consecutive years. Analyses of variance and correlation of infection between years showed that conclusive differences in resistance to H. lethale existed among progeny and these differences were strongly inherited. No relationship was found between total height and intensity of damage by H. lethale in either pine species. Forest Sci. 17:143-144.
