Nectriafuckeliana Booth var. macrospora (Wr.) Booth was commonly associated with open, resinous cankers of dwarf mistletoe swellings of western hemlock (Tsugaheterophylla (Raf.) Sarg.) in British Columbia, Canada. Pathogenicity of the fungus was proved by artificial inoculation and reisolation from cankered tissues. Cankers substantially reduced dwarf mistletoe reproduction.
