Phellinus noxius (有害木層孔菌) is a white simultaneous rot fungus that causes Brown Root Rot(BRR) disease (褐根病), which could result in rapid health and structural deterioration of trees and may lead to tree failure.
Phellinus noxius is a plant pathogen. It attacks a wide range of tropical plants, and is the cause of brown root rot disease. It was described as "an aggressive and destructive pathogen". The pathogen invades roots with contact between roots of a potential host with the substrate on which the fungus is growing.
