Title: Pythium Species Isolated From Taro (Colocasia Esculenta) In Hawaii
Authors: Yamamoto, Brian
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: Isolates of papillate, proliferous Pythium sp. resembling Pythium helicoides Drechs, and P. carolinianum Matthews were cultured from soft rot corms of taro (Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott) from the major islands of Hawaii. Temperature maximum for growth (43˚C) of these isolates also was comparable to those for P. helicoides and P. carolinianum. Due to a lack of the sexual stage of these isolates in diseased material or in culture, the fungus was placed with the imperfect fungus, P. carolinianum.
