Armillaria mellea, the oak root fun gus, is an important disease-producing organism in California. The common name of the fungus is somewhat misleading for, though it is found on oaks, it also attacks and damages or kills many other plants including such crop plants as peaches, almonds, citrus, grapes, walnuts, apricots, plums, and many ornamentals.
