Notes:
This fungus is abundant in Central New York, often encompassing (and killing) entire dogwood trees, from top to bottom. I had always thought it was a rust. Not only is it an ascomycete (Cryphonectriaceae, Diaporthales), it’s an endophyte as well. See http://dx.doi.org/10.3852/14-004

Host: branches and trunks of living pagoda dogwood (Cornus alternifolia)

Habitat: public park trail among mixed hardwood and cedar forest beside meromictic lake

Ecoregion: Eastern Great Lakes lowland forests (NA0407)

Collectors: D. Newman & P. Kaishian

Collection #: n/a
