Dothistroma pini Hulbary, 1941

The fungus is indistinguishable in morphology and symptoms from Dothistroma septosporum. It can only be separated through its DNA structure. It infects pine trees and has been initially reported from North America and eastern Europe. It has subsequently also been found in various countries of western Europe. The fungus infects the needles which show red bands and the infection leads to needle cast. A study by Fabre et al. (2012) suggests that D. pini appears to favor a warmer environment, compared to D. septosporum.
