We report the presence of a Pseudofusicoccum species associated with cankers showing gummosis in peach shoots for the first time. Identification was performed by sequence analysis of the concatenated ITS and EF1-α genes. The Pseudofusicoccum sp. was morphologically described and its pathogenicity was evaluated under laboratory conditions. 


New Botryosphaeriales on native red milkwood (Mimusops caffra)
Two new species in the Botryosphaeriales were found and one of them, Neofusicoccum mangroviorum, appears to be the cause of the die-back disease on native coastal red milkwood trees growing on the east coast of South Africa.
Seven new species of the Botryosphaeriaceae from baobab and other native trees in Western Australia
In this study seven new species of the Botryosphaeriaceae are described from baobab (Adansonia gibbosa) and surrounding endemic tree species growing in the Kimberley region of northwestern Australia.
Botryosphaeriaceae species associated with wood diseases of stone and pome fruits trees: symptoms and virulence across different hosts in Uruguay
The fact that fungal isolates obtained from one host could cause disease symptoms also in some of the alternative hosts suggests that cross infections are possible between apple, pear and peach trees.
Pseudofusicoccum adansoniae isolated as an endophyte from Jatropha podagrica: new record for India.
Comparison of the internal transcribed spacer 1 and 2 loci and 5.8S rDNA sequences showed 100% sequence similarity with that of CBS 122055, the ex-type strain of P. adansoniae.
Botryosphaeriaceae associated with Pterocarpus angolensis (kiaat) in South Africa
The aim of this study was to identify these Botryosphaeriaceae and to determine their pathogenicity to P. angolensis with branch inoculations, and to suggest that this species could play a role in tree dieback and death.
Caulicolous Botryosphaeriales from Thailand
Four novel species are described, namely Diplodia neojuniperi from Juniperus chinensis, Lasiodiplodia thailandica from Mangifera indica, Pseudofusicoccum artocarpi and Aplosporellaceae from Artocarpus heterophyllus, while a sexual morph is also newly reported for L. gonubiensis.
Botryosphaeria, Neofusicoccum, Neoscytalidium and Pseudofusicoccum species associated with mango in Brazil
There were significant differences in virulence among the species, with Ne.
The Botryosphaeriaceae: genera and species known from culture
It seems likely that all of the older taxa linked to the Botryosphaeriaceae, and for which cultures or DNA sequence data are not available, cannot belinked to the species in this family that are known from culture, and will have to be disregarded for future use unless they are epitypified.
Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriaceae
DNA sequence data of the 28S rDNA is employed to resolve apparent lineages within the Botryosphaeriaceae and 10 lineages are recognised, including an unresolved clade including species of Camarosporium/Microdiplodia.
