Importance and distribution
Dothistroma comprises three species known on several host plants within Pinaceae. Dothistroma has been reported in several countries such as Asia (China, Russia), Europe (France, Romania, Spain, Ukraine), New Zealand and the United States (Indiana). Dothistroma species are pathogenic and responsible for disease of Pinus (Barnes et al. 2014). The fungus kills pine needles and affects tree growth (Piou and Ioos 2014).
