>What is Hormodendron?



Maybe it's a Rhododendron on steroids.  Actually, I found it in Introduction
to Mycology, 3rd ed., by Alexopoulos and Mims.  It is in subdivision 
Deuteromycotina, form-class Deuteromycetes, form-order Moniliales, 
form-family Moniliaceae.

"Many are parasitic on plants and cause a group of diseases called 
anthracnoses."
