Alternaria tenuissima (Nees) Wiltshire 1933
The fungus infects various crops, e.g. it causes dry core rot on apple during storage, with yield losses of 6-8%. Conidia are 10-70 μm long (mean 28 μm) and 5-15 μm wide (mean 5 μm) with 1 to 6 transverse and 0 to 2 longitudinal septa. Conidial beaks, when present, are short (5 μm or less) and tapered.
