Gremmeniella abietina (Lagerberg) M. Morelet

The fungus causes Scleroderris canker and shoot dieback on pine and other conifers in Europe and North America, especially under cool and moist conditions. It caused a devastating epidemic on pines in northern Finland and the Kola Peninsula in the 1980s. In 2001, 50,000 ha of pine forest were severely damaged in Sweden.
