Welcome to the Stenocarpella and Phaeocytostroma database

Species of Stenocarpella are commonly isolated from diseased maize crops worldwide, especially during humid seasons. The two species reported from literature to be associated with cob and stalk rot and leaf blight of maize are S. macrospora and S. maydis (both having quarantine status on the A2 list of EPPO). Species of Phaeocytostroma are commonly associated with stalk rots of different hosts, with P. ambiguum being reported from maize in many countries across the world. Although the taxonomic position of Phaeocytostroma has long been uncertain, it was recently shown to be a closely related sister genus to Stenocarpella in the Diaporthaceae.
