Occurrence/distribution The disease is known to occur in many countries worldwide (Fig. 60). c. Disease history In 1986, the causal fungus of this disease was originally called Tilletia horrida. Later it was identified as Neovossia barclayana. Further studies made placed it in the genus Tilletia; it is now known as Tilletia barclayana. d. Importance in crop production The disease can be observed in the field at the mature stage of the rice plant. It is considered economically unimportant, causing stunting of 53 seedlings and reduction in tillers and yield when smutted seeds are planted.
The colony on the reverse side of the agar plate is slightly zonated with radial wrinkles and orange, becoming light outward. 87cm diam in 5 d. They are azonated with even margins and light orange with scarce white aerial mycelia. White mycelial tufts are produced as colonies age.
