Fusarium subglutinans (Wollenw. & Reinking 1925) P.E. Nelson, Toussoun & Marasas 1983

This fungus is widely distributed and an important pathogen of maize, causing seedling disease, stalk and ear rots. It has been also reported as a pathogen of various other crops, but several formae speciales have been described as separate species (see below). F. subglutinans can produce several mycotoxins, depending on the strain like beauvericin, fusaric acid, moniliformin, and high levels of fusaproliferin, but little to no fumonisins.
