Alternaria franseriae, Alternaria tenuissima, Curvularia pallescens, Fusarium sambucinum and Pestalotia sp. were pathogenic on Chamaecyparis lawsoniana, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Minima Aurea', Thuja sp., Juniperus horizontalis, Juniperus chinensis and Cupressus arizonica
The most disease severity was caused by A. franseriae on C. lawsoniana and the least disease severity by Pestalotia sp. on C. lawsoniana 'Minima Aurea'
