Johnston, P.R.. D. Park & M.A. Manning. Neobulgaria alba sp. nov. and its Phialophora-like anamorph in native forests and kiwifruit orchards in New Zealand. Mycotaxon 113: 385–396. 2010.

ABSTRACT: Surveys of fungi associated with stained vascular tissue in kiwifruit vines in New Zealand have consistently revealed Phialophora-like fungi. Phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences have shown most of these to be Leotiomycetes. The teleomorph of the most common species isolated from stained kiwifruit wood has been found on fallen wood in native forests, and it is described here as Neobulgaria alba sp. nov. Other species isolated from kiwifruit wood matched Cadophora and Mollisia spp. reported from similar symptoms from kiwifruit and other hosts in other countries.

KEYWORDS: vascular staining, pathogen, Actinidia deliciosa, phylogeny, Phaeoacremonium
