It's only found in the Pacific NW so far as I'm aware.

A recent publication just published last month showed Treponema species of bacteria is the cause of the disease.

Here is a link to the abstract. It was published online in September apparently but didn't make it to print until the last issue.

I’v never heard of it in the Blues but it’s fairly common on the west coat where it rains constantly and the moss covered ground is always soft.
