Abstract

Pythium periplocum Drechsler is a necrotrophic mycoparasite that has been recorded infrequently (Plaats-Niterink, 1986) and little studied. There is some evidence that it has a different distribution than-and, thus, probably differs physiologically and ecologically from- the better known mycoparasite, P. oligandrum Drechsler (Hendrix and Campbell, 1970). Some aspects of the use of P. periplocum as biological control agent are presented in connection with experiments aimed at the control of damping-off of cucumber seedlings caused by P. aphanidermatum (Edson) Fitzp.
