Fusarium guttiforme Nirenberg & O'Donnell 1998

This fungus infects pineapple in South and Central America America. The symptoms include chlorosis, stunting and rotting of the stem and the developing fruit. Yield losses can exceed 20% and occasionally 50%. Spread of the disease apparently occurs through conidia entering small wounds. No chlamydospores are produced.

Synonym: Fusarium subglutinans f.sp. ananas
