Ceratocystis moniliformis f. coffeae
Ceratocystis fimbriata is a large, diverse complex of species that cause wilt-type diseases of many economically important plants. It is thought likely that it contains many undescribed, hidden species. One form of the fungus which causes a wilt disease in cacao was in 2005 described as a new species Ceratocystis cacaofunesta. Another form which causes a disease on plane trees (Platanus), and which was previously known as Ceratocystis fimbriata f. platani, was in 2005 elevated to species Ceratocystis platani.
