Fusarium mangiferae Britz, M.J. Wingf. & Marasas 2002

This fungus causes the mango malformation disease in Asia, Africa, the Mediterranean region and North America. Infected trees are stunted with an increased formation of vegetative buds and flowers. Leaves are smaller and fewer fruits are produced that are often aborted. Microconidia are around 5-8 x 2 µm long. Macroconidia are more slender, around 40 x 2-3 µm with 3-5 cells.
