First report of Chrysoporthe cubensis from Eucalyptus in Ghana
Plant Pathology 59 (4), 806-806
Abstract: During 2007, Eucalyptus dagambae trees growing in Ghana were observed with symptoms of stem cankers (some girdling the entire tree), including cracked bark, mostly at the bases of trees, bearing long necked fungal fruiting bodies. The fungus Chrysoporthe cubensis was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and ITS sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
