Fusarium equiseti (Corda 1838) Sacc., 1886

This fungus has a world-wide distribution and is a common soil inhabitant. It is usually regarded as a saprobe and weak pathogen, infesting mainly senescent or damaged plant tissue. However, it can also produce plant toxins, and can be a true pathogen in some crops like cereals, soybeans, and cucurbits. The diseases associated with this fungus include wilts, rots, leaf spots and dieback. Some authors consider Fusarium equiseti to be a complex of several species.
