Moniliophthora perniciosa

Synonyms: Crinipellis perniciosa, Marasmius perniciosus.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Moniliophthora perniciosa (previously Crinipellis perniciosa) is a fungus that causes "witches' broom disease" (WBD) of the cocoa tree (Theobroma cacao L.). T. cacao a tropical tree with seeds that are processed into cocoa (=cacao) products. This pathogen is currently limited to South America, Panama and the Caribbean, and is perhaps one of the best-known cocoa diseases, thought to have co-evolved with cocoa in its centre of origin (first recorded in the Brazilian Amazon in 1785).

Dutch: Krulloten.
