Four new host and three new state records of Dothistroma needle blight caused by Dothistroma pini in the United States
Plant Disease 98 (10), 1443-1443
Abstract: Between 2009 and 2011, Dothistroma needle blight was observed on various Pinus species in North and South Dakota, U.S.A. Affected trees had dark brown bands or spots on necrotic needles that contained erumpent black acervuli. The fungus Dothistroma pini was isolated from the diseased trees. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and DNA sequence analysis.
