Full Text:



A new species, Phytophthora chlamydospora, is described. P. chlamydospora, previously known informally as P. taxon Pgchlamydo, is found in streams and wet soil worldwide and is a pathogen of some riparian tree species. It is self-sterile, and produces persistent non-papillate sporangia, usually on unbranched sporangiophores. Clamydospores are formed most regularly at warmer temperatures. Phytophthora chlamydospora is classified in ITS Clade 6.
