Pathogenicity of Cenangium ferruginosum Fr. ex Fr., Dermea balsamea (Pk.) Seaver, D. piceina Groves, Potebniamyces coniferarum (Hahn) Smerlis, and Pragmopora pithya ((Fr.) Groves was confirmed and demonstrated on additional tree species. Pathogenicity of the following was demonstrated for the first time: Ascocalyx laricina (Ettl.) Schläpfer, Biatorella resinae (Fr.) Mudd, Dermea pinicola Groves, Lachnellula agassizii (Berk. & Curt.) Dennis, L. arida (Phill.) Dennis, L. gallica (Karst. & Har.) Dennis, L. occidentalis (Hahn & Ayers) Dharne, Potebniamyces balsamicola Smerlis var. balsamicola, and Pragmopora amphibola Massal. Inoculations with Ascocalyx abietis Naumov, Lachnellula ciliata (Hahn) Dennis, L. suecica (de By. ex Fckl.) Nannf., Odontotrema hemisphaericum (Fr.) Rehm, Pezicula livida (Berk. & Br.)
