Freebase

  1. Verticillium

    Verticillium is a genus of fungi in the division Ascomycota, and are an anamorphic form of the Plectosphaerellaceae family. The genus used to include diverse groups comprising saprobes and parasites of higher plants, insects, nematodes, mollusc eggs and other fungi thus it can be seen that the genus used to have a wide ranging group of taxa characterised by simple but ill-defined characters. The genus, currently thought to contain 51 species, may be broadly divided into three ecologically based groups 1 mycopathogens 2 entomopathogens and 3 plant pathogens and related saprotrophs. However, recently the genus has undergone some revision into which most entomopathogenic and mycopathogenic isolates fall into a new group called Lecanicillium. The genus now includes the plant pathogenic species V. dahliae, V. longisporum, V. albo-atrum, V. nubilum, and V. tricorpus. The better known species of Verticillium are V. dahliae, V. albo-atrum and V. longisporum, which cause wilt diseases called Verticillium wilts in more than 400 eudicot plant species.
