Abstract

In summer 2009 fungi belonging to the genus Monilia were isolated from mummified blackberry fruits covered with white to grey fungal structures between the drupelets. Isolates were identified as Monilia fructicola based on morphological and growth characteristics as well as two specific polymerase chain reactions. Next to the orchard where the infected blackberries have been grown we found M. fructicola on mummified fruits of cherry and plum trees.

Key words

Erster Nachweis von Monilia fructicola an Brombeerfrüchten

Zusammenfassung

Im Sommer 2009 wurden von mumifizierten Brombeerfrüchten, die zwischen den Beerchen weißliche Pilzstrukturen aufwiesen, ein Pilz aus der Gattung Monilia isoliert. Basierend auf morphologischen Charakteristika, Wachstumsmerkmalen und zwei spezifischen PCR-Verfahren wurde er als Monilia fructicola identifiziert. In der Nähe der Brombeeranlage wurden Fruchtmumien an Kirsch- und Zwetschenbäumen gefunden, die ebenfalls mit M. fructicola infiziert waren.
