Abstract Most phytosanitary inspections rely on a visual 'disease-free' inspection, and the question is raised whether this is sufficient, given the fact that plant pathogenic fungi may enter countries as endophytes, or latent pathogens in apparently healthy tissue. Inspectors mostly deal with lists of names of fungal species, but many pathogens are in fact species complexes, and pest lists rarely remain up to date with respect to new systematic treatments. Pathogens may also introduce new genetic diversity or mating types, which could be as devastating as the introduction of a new pathogen. It is therefore proposed that an international initiative should be funded to ensure that systematic support, accurate nomenclature, genetic material and genomic data are available to assist NPPOs in their task
