Divisions Microsporidia Chytridiomycota Zygomycota Ascomycota Basidiomycota Fungi (singular: fungus) are a major group of living things, originally considered plants but now treated as the separate kingdom Fungi. ...
Conidia are produced externally on mainly early-instar cadavers and are critical for disease transmission during a season.
Conidia were abundant in the air during sporadic intervals when gypsy moth populations were relatively high (>20,000 egg masses/ha in 1992), but were almost undetectable when gypsy moth larvae were scarce (<100 egg masses/ha at the beginning of the 1993 field season).
Conidia were only present in the air after periods of leaf wetness, with a lag of 5 to 16 hours from the start of leaf wetness to conidial presence, and large releases of conidia only occurred during extended stormy periods.
