First report of Vialaea minutella in Australia, its association with mango branch dieback and systematic placement of Vialaea in the Xylariales

McTaggart, A. R. and Grice, K. R. and Shivas, R. G. (2013) First report of Vialaea minutella in Australia, its association with mango branch dieback and systematic placement of Vialaea in the Xylariales. Australasian Plant Disease Notes, 8 (1). pp. 63-66.

Abstract

Vialaea minutella was consistently isolated from infected mango trees showing branch dieback symptoms in northern Queensland. The fungus was identified by morphology and confirmed with molecular sequence data. This is the first report of V. minutella in Australia. The systematic position of Vialaea was confirmed to be in the Xylariales based on reconstructed LSU sequence data.
