cf. F.A. 29 No. 2502.) The inhibition of Phytophthora cinnamomi germination and growth by six ectotrophic mycorrhizal fungi commonly associated with Pinus echinata and/or P. taeda was investigated in agar plate cultures. Leucopaxillus cerealis var. piceina strongly inhibited all isolates of P. cinnamomi, whereas Pisolithus tinctorius and Amanita muscaria were without effect, and the other species were weakly inhibitory.
