A new species of Coccomyces is described. The life cycle and cultural characteristics are presented. The fungus is associated with various bark diseases of western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) in the Coastal forest of British Columbia and Washington State. Some evidence of weak parasitism was found in natural infections; artificial inoculations with the fungus were negative.
