Distribution details in Ecuador

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 2020: Absent, invalid record
From CABI Disease map 294 (1990): Present, no details
From NPPO: Absent, invalid record
The original source (Burbano & Ruiz, 1943) of the record of T. tritici in Ecuador does not mention sampling or the identification of the fungus in the laboratory. This old record has never been confirmed by more recent ones. In addition, the NPPO of Ecuador has officially confirmed the absence of the fungus from its territory. This old record is therefore considered to be invalid.
