Diplodia seriata De Not. 1842
The fungus is widespread and causes canker, dieback, fruit rot and other diseases on fruit trees and grapevine. In trunk cross-sections the necrosis is wedge-shaped. Infections are especially common on grapevine where the fungus also causes spring bud mortality and leaf spot.
The conidia are initially hyaline and later become dark brown, moderately thick-walled (ca. 0.5 μm thick), externally smooth, aseptate and ovoid. The average size is 25 x 13 µm.
Botryosphaeria obtusa (Schwein. 1832) Shoemaker 1962 has been cited as the teleomorph name for this species.
