Historically, the soil habiting fungus Cladobotryum dendroides (Teleopmorh- Hypomyces rosellus) is the main causal agent of cobweb disease of the cultivated mushroom Agaricus bisporus. However, there are several Cladobotryum species that cause cobweb disease in commercially cultivated white button mushroom and other economically and wild edible mushrooms .The Cladobotryum protrusum genome is the first complete genome to be sequenced in the genus Cladobotryum (39.09 Mb).
