Neofusicoccum parvum and N. ribis (Botryosphaeriaceae, Ascomycetes) are closely related, plant pathogenic fungi with a world-wide distribution on a wide range of woody hosts. Species boundaries in the N. parvum/N. ribis complex have eluded definition, despite the application of various tools for characterisation. In this study, we test the hypothesis that only one species exists amongst isolates from the N. parvum/N. ribis complex, identified from Syzygiumcordatum trees across their native… CONTINUE READING
