Pyricularia graminis-tritici V.L. Castroagudín, S.I. Moreira, J.L.N. Maciel, B.A. McDonald, Crous & P.C. Ceresini 2016
This fungus has been described from southern Brazil where it infects wheat, oat, barley and various grasses. However, it has a small effect on rice which is not infected naturally by this species. By cultural characteristics and morphology, it is indistinguishable from Pyricularia oryzae (both the pathotype Oryza and the pathotype Triticum). A strain that has caused a wheat blast outbreak in Bangladesh in 2016 is closely related to P. graminis-tritici.
