Species of Cylindrocladiella occur on a variety of hosts, where they are known to act as pathogens or saprobes. Eight species from this genus are currently recognised, of which five have been reported previously in South Africa: C. camelliae, C. elegans, C. lageniformis, C. parva and C. peruviana. Isolates of Cylindrocladiella were obtained from a newly established 99-Richter grapevine mother vine block exhibiting decline symptoms. The DNA phylogeny of these and additional isolates, also… CONTINUE READING
