Neozygites linanensis sp. nov., a fungal pathogen infecting bamboo aphids in southeast China
Neozygites linanensis sp. nov. was identified as infecting the aphid Takecallis taiwanus collected on bamboo plants, Chimonobambusa quadrangularis, in the Lin'an region of southeast China during spring and summer 2014. This is the first record of a Neozygites species on T. taiwanus. The Chinese Neozygites specimen is described, illustrated, and discussed. The phylogenetic relationship among selected Neozygites species is evaluated based on the successful sequence of the SSU rDNA gene from the new fungus.
