A new species of Diaporthe, for which the name D. lokoyae Funk is proposed, is described on the host Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) and in culture. This Diaporthe is shown to be the ascigerous state of Phomopsis lokoyae Hahn. An outbreak of dieback in Douglas fir associated with this Diaporthe is described and discussed; a single occurrence on western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg.) is reported.
