Description

This fungus infects Box elder (Acer negundo) and turns the twigs white, killing them. Sometimes the fungus looks like broken up black circles (see photo 1), a bit like cheetah spots, and sometimes it looks like complete circles. I have seen similar Box elder twigs with this fungus, where part of the pale twig was an orangish pink hue.

After letting the twig sit in a moisture chamber, pinkish goo started to ooze out of the black circles. I believe this is an anamorph of some Ascomycete. A photo of the conidia at 1000x is shown. The spores are elliptical / pill shaped and have numerous round guttules in them.
