Pythium oligandrum Drechsler 1930

This oomycete is widely distributed and is known as a mycoparasite which can be beneficial in suppressing fungal diseases, see Pythium oligandrum (antagonist) for details. Although it has been frequently reported to be associated with diseased roots (see literature records on the left), these records might, therefore not indicate it is the cause of diseases. A few reports have suggested it is "weakly pathogenic" to plants. On the other hand, it can also infect mushroom cultures.
