Gloeosporium lupini Bondar is transferred to Colletotrichum. The fungus is characterized morphologically and illustrated. The two varieties, Colletotrichum lupini (Bondar) Nirenberg, Feiler & Hagedorn, comb. nov. var. lupini and Colletotrichum lupini var. setosum Nirenberg, Feiler & Hagedorn var. nov. are described. They are compared with additional(More)
A new species of Fusarium, Fusarium langsethiae, is described, illustrated and discussed. This species is isolated from kernels of oats, wheat and barley in several European countries. Morphologically, the species resembles Fusarium poae. It is differentiated from F. poae by slower growth, less aerial mycelium and absence of odour; its napiform or globose(More)
Trichoderma (Ascomycetes, Hypocreales) strains that have warted conidia are traditionally identified as T. viride, the type species of Trichoderma. However, two morphologically distinct types of conidial warts (I and II) have been found. Because each type corresponds to a unique mitochondrial DNA pattern, it has been questioned whether T. viride comprises(More)
Fusarium commune sp. nov. was isolated from soil and Pisum sativum in Denmark and several widespread locations within the northern hemisphere from diverse substrates including white pine, Douglas fir, carnation, corn, carrot, barley and soil. Fusarium commune is characterized by and distinguished from its putative sister taxon, the F. oxysporum complex, in(More)
More than 600Fusarium strains were screened for their ability to produce moniliformin in vitro. They represented 90 species and 15 sections (without sectionPseudomicrocera). A simple TLC-method (agar plug method) was tested for its applicability to detect moniliformin in fungal cultures. It revealed moniliformin production in 146 strains representing 32(More)
A new Phytophthora hybrid of Ph. cactorum (Leb. & Cohn) Schroet. and Ph. nicotianaevan Breda de Haan pathogenic to cultivars of Pelargonium grandiflorum hort. is described as Phytophthora X pelgrandis and its morphological features are documented. Morphological, physiological (e.g., temperature requirements) and molecular data (DNA sequencing, random(More)
ABSTRACT Fusarium wilt of cotton is a serious fungal disease responsible for significant yield losses throughout the world. Evolution of the causal organism Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum, including the eight races described for this specialized form, was studied using multigene genealogies. Partial sequences of translation elongation factor(More)
Three strains of Trichoderma brevicompactum and another four that are closely related to that species (Trichoderma cf. brevicompactum) were analyzed for the formation of polypeptide antibiotics (peptaibiotics) by LC/ESI-MS(n). These isolates were selected because of an antagonistic potential against Eutypa dieback and Esca disease of grapevine and have not(More)
The composition and relative abundance of endophytic fungi in roots of field-grown transgenic T4-lysozyme producing potatoes and the parental line were assessed by classical isolation from root segments and cultivation-independent techniques to test the hypothesis that endophytic fungi are affected by T4-lysozyme. Fungi were isolated from the majority of(More)
