Synopsis of Fungi Listed as Regulated Plant Pests by the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service: Notes on Nomenclature, Disease, Plant Hosts, and Geographic Distribution

E. T. Cline and D. F. Farr

May 2006


The USDA-APHIS Regulated Plant Pest List includes over 50 species of fungi that might cause serious economic or environmental damage. The fungi on the list represent some of the most significant threats to U.S. agriculture. For each of these fungal species, a synopsis was prepared that presents notes on nomenclature, disease, plant hosts, and geographic distribution, as well as recommendations for changes to the list. These changes can have important implications for accurately determining the geographic distribution and host range of a fungus.
