Isolations for blue-stain fungi were made from Hylastes ater, H. opacus, Hylurgops palliatus and Tomicus piniperda trapped in Pinus sylvestris billets. Five Leptographium spp. including one of unknown identity and two apparently undescribed Graphium spp. were isolated. One of the Leptographium spp. identified as L. truncatum is thought to be synonymous with L. lundbergii. This is the first record of Leptographium procerum, L. serpens and L. wingfieldii from the United Kingdom. Leptographium lundbergii has previously been found in the country. © 1991, British Mycological Society. All rights reserved.
