A new species of the genus Phytophthora was isolated from stream water in the subtropical forests of China during a survey of forest Phytophthora from 2011 to 2013. This new species is formally described here and named Phytophthora pseudopolonica sp. nov. This new homothallic species is distinct from other known Phytophthora species in morphology and produces nonpapillate and noncaducous sporangia with internal proliferation. Spherical hyphal swellings and thin-walled chlamydospores are…

An expanded phylogeny for the genus Phytophthora
A comprehensive phylogeny representing 142 described and 43 provisionally named Phytophthora species is reported here for this rapidly expanding genus and new hypotheses were proposed for the evolutionary history of sporangial papillation of Phytphthora species.
Phytophthora Species from Xinjiang Wild Apple Forests in China
The first comprehensive study from Xinjiang to examine the Phytophthora communities in wild apple forests found that P. lacustris was the dominant species at BL, XY, and JQ, while P. gonapodyides was the most common at KE.


Phytophthora chrysanthemi sp. nov., a new species causing root rot of chrysanthemum in Japan
The morphological characteristics and phylogenetic relationships indicate that the isolates represent a new species of Phytophthora chrysanthemi sp.
A unique species in Phytophthora clade 10, Phytophthora intercalaris sp. nov., recovered from stream and irrigation water in the eastern USA.
Phylogenetic analyses based on sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region and the β-tubulin and mitochondrial cytochrome-c oxidase 1 (cox1) genes indicated that the novel species is phylogenetically close to Phytophthora gallica in Phytphthora clade 10.

The morphological characteristics, the phylogenetic relationships and pathogenicity characteristics that support the description of this taxon as a new species with the proposed name Phytophthora morindae sp.
Phytophthora pseudosyringae sp. nov., a new species causing root and collar rot of deciduous tree species in Europe.
On the basis of their unique combination of morphological characters, colony growth patterns, cardinal temperatures for growth, growth rates, pathogenicity to oaks, beech, alder, apple and holly, their host range, and ITS and mtDNA sequences the semi-papillate caducous Phytophthora isolates from oaks , and described as a new species, P. pseudosyringae sp.
A high-temperature tolerant species in clade 9 of the genus Phytophthora: P. hydrogena sp. nov.
These characteristics support the description of this taxon as a new species for which the name P. hydrogena sp.
Phytophthora hydropathica, a new pathogen identified from irrigation water, Rhododendron catawbiense and Kalmia latifolia.
This species caused leaf necrosis and shoot blight of Rhododendron catawbiense and collar rot of Kalmia latifolia at two nurseries where irrigation reservoirs yielded P. hydropathica.
