A new root and crown rot disease of heath in California caused by Cylindrocladium pauciramosum
Plant Disease 83 (6), 589-589
Abstract: During 1997, ornamental heath (Erica capensis) plants grown in California, U.S.A. were observed with symptoms of necrotic roots. Crowns became gray-green in color, withered, and the plants died. The fungus Cylindrocladium pauciramosum was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics. The isolates also produced perithecia with viable progeny of Calonectria pauciramosa when mated with tester strains of Cylindrocladium pauciramosum. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
