Dothistroma septosporum is a pathogen widely distributed (more common in warm areas), causing economic losses and mortality. The most characteristic symptom are (i) red and/or brown banding on the needles (shoots of the present and previous year) and (ii) black fruit bodies. D. septosporum was frequently found on P. radiata, but was not isolated on P. pinaster. Other fungi found on P. radiata associated to D. septosporum were Cyclaneusma minus, Pestalotia funerea, Sphaeropsis sapinea, Meloderma desmazierii and Strasseria geniculata, and, to a lesser extent, Botrytis cinerea, Pestalotia hartigii, Phomopsis occulta, Cytospora spp. and Epicoccum spp.

(Phytopathology problems of Pseudotsuga menziesii in Galicia.
The objective of this work is to know the phytosanitary status of the main plantations of Pseudotsuga menziensii in Galicia and of the main nurseries producing them. For this purpose we have taken samples of soil, roots and aereal parts and identified in laboratory, insects and fungal pathogens that were present in those samples. The main fungus found in nurseries were fungus of the damping-off complex, basically, Phytophthora cinnamomi and Fusarium spp and in adult plants Armillaria mellea and acicular fungus as Phaerocryptopus gauemanii and Dothistroma septospora. In connection with insects found we can mentionborer insects:Ips sexdentatus, Tomicus piniperda, Orthotomicus erosus, Hylobius abietis and Rhyazonia buoliana, European pine shoot moth, as well as sucker insects as Adelges cooleyi y Heliotrips haemorroidalis.)
