G. clavigera

The ophiostomatoid fungus Grosmannia clavigera (anamorph: Leptographium clavigerum) is a haploid filamentous ascomycetes and a symbiont of the bark beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae (MPB), which is a native beetle of western North American pine forests. MPB outbreaks affect not only commercial conifer forests but also parks, protected areas and urban forests. The current epidemic has killed lodgepole pine across more than 16 million hectares of British Columbia.
