Lasiodiplodia pseudotheobromae A.J.L. Phillips, A. Alves & Crous 2008

This fungus has a worldwide distribution and is a common endophyte and pathogen of various plants in tropical and subtropical regions. It has been reported to cause canker, dieback, discolouration of the wood, postharvest fruit rot and other diseases on a large variety of plants. Common hosts are grapevine as well as fruit and forest trees. The pathogen can enter the plant through small wounds and might initially go through a latent endophytic stage.
