  • a CMWF refers to the Fusarium culture collection of the Forestry and Agriculture Biotechnology Institute, FABI, University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa.

  • b The isolates of F. circinatum were all reported from previous studies where those from Mexico and California were used by Wikler and Gordon (2000), while those from the Western Cape and Mpumalanga provinces of South Africa were respectively reported by Steenkamp et al. (2014) and Viljoen et al. (1997). The representatives of F. subglutinans came from the study of Steenkamp et al. (2001). All of the isolates from Syzigium cordatum originated from a previous survey of the diversity of Fusarium species associated with this host in South Africa (Kvas et al. 2008; E. Steenkamp, unpublished data).
