Figure 2. Syagrus romanzoffiana trunk collapse due to Thielaviopsis trunk rot. Only a few young green leaves remain. Note the "stem bleeding" or oozing of plant liquid down the trunk from the point of collapse.
Figure 5. The canopy of Cocos nucifera in the center is wilted and necrotic due to a trunk infection by Thielaviopsis paradoxa. The infection site was just below the oldest leaf base. Photo by M. L. Elliott.
