First report on the association between Ceratocystis fimbriata, an agent of mango wilt, Xyleborus affinis, and the sawdust produced during beetle colonization in Brazil
Plant Disease 97 (8), 1116-1116
Abstract: During 2011, mango trees grown in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil were observed with wilt symptoms (yellowish to dried leaves, dried stems, and gum exudation from the stem) and also found be attacked by Xyleborus affinis. The fungus Ceratocystis fimbriata was isolated from sawdust produced by the beetles on the affected trees, the beetles themselves and the mango stems. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
