The Armillaria species causing Armillaria root rot on P. salicina in Korea was identified as A tabescens based on the morphology of the basidiomata and analysis of DNA sequences. This work reports for the first time in Korea a pathogenic fungus of A tabescens on P. salicina. From phylogenic analysis, A tabescens isolate categorized it as a North American species except for the Czech species. However, the European species from Italy and France were distinctly distinguished from the isolate.
