Arceuthobium vaginatum (weed) (Willd.) Presl - (southwestern dwarf mistletoe, Mexican dwarf mistletoe)

This species of mistletoe is common in south-western parts of North America. Mainly pine trees are infested and the growth of the host trees can be significantly reduced (González-Elizondo et al., 2019). Apart from the typical form, 2 subspecies or varieties are recognised (A. vaginatum subsp. durangense and A. vaginatum subsp. cryptopodum).
