Phellinus noxius (Wikipedia)

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.
