The fungus produce ovoid sporangium which was ovoid to spherical which is noncaducous, papillate and averaged 35.4×25.2 μm in dimension. Chlamydospores were abundantly produced on agar media and sized about 28.5 μm in diameter. The fungus was heterothallic and A1 mating type. Oospores were measured 23.3 μm in size. Optimum temperature for growth of the fungus was 25 to 30oC. Up to our knowledge, this is the first report demonstrating the stem rot on English ivy caused by P. nicotianae in Korea.
