First report of <i>Botryosphaeria corticola</i> affecting <i>Quercus afares</i> and <i>Q. canariensis</i> in Tunisia

By Benedetto Teodoro Linaldeddu, F. Hasnaoui and Antonio Franceschini


In Tunisia, oak forests are widespread chiefly in the Northwest regions where they play an important ecological and socio-economical role. In September 2006, cankers and dieback of branches were observed in <i>Quercus afares</i> and <i>Q. canariensis</i> trees in the reserve of Aïn Zena near Aïn Draham (north-west Tunisia). Fungal isolates obtained from twigs and branches showing sunken necrotic bark lesions were identified as <i>Botryosphaeria corticola</i> on the basis of morphological characters as described by Alves <i>et al</i>.
