Abstract

The white rot basidiomycete fungus Amylostereum areolatum is carried by females of Sirex noctilio in mycangia at the base of their ovipositors and inserted into pine trees when eggs are deposited. S. noctilio and A. areolatum are native to Europe but have been introduced throughout many areas in the Southern Hemisphere where pines have been planted (pines are not native to the Southern Hemisphere).
