- Two fungi were recently described as pathogens of pome fruit in the U.S. Pacific Northwest: Lambertella corni-maris on apple, and Phacidium lacerum Fr. (syn. Ceuthospora pinastri (Fr.) Höhn.) on apple and d'Anjou pear. Here we document pathogenicity of L. corni-maris to d'Anjou pear, Malus ‘Profusion’ crabapple, and sweetbriar rose, and pathogenicity of P. lacerum to ‘Profusion’ crabapple and sweetbriar rose.
