Hanna Stępniewska , Robert Jankowiak , Piotr Boroń , Kamil Woźniak


In 2015–2016, damping‐off symptoms were observed on Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies seedlings in four forest nurseries in Poland. Some Calonectria isolates were obtained from symptomatic seedlings by culturing pieces of necrotic tissue on malt extract agar.Morphological and molecular analyses revealed that isolates represent Calonectria montana , a recently described species from natural forests in China. The isolates represent the first detection of this species outside of Asia. Pathogenicity tests demonstrated that C. montana is a severe pathogen of P. sylvestris seedlings.
