Phlebiopsis gigantea (antagonist) (Fr.) Jülich 1978
This fungus is a common wood-rotting basidiomycete, found in Europe and several other regions, but mainly in the northern hemisphere. It is commonly used as a biocontrol agent to prevent (by competition) the colonization of freshly cut conifer stumps by root-rotting pathogenic fungi. For example, it is frequently used on pine stumps to prevent the colonization of Heterobasidion annosum, but works also against other pathogens like Heterobasidion parviporum (Żółciak et al., 2016) or Armillaria novae-zelandiae (Hood et al., 2015).
