What is Pink Snow Mold?

Microdochium patch or Pink Snow Mold is a fungus that is found primarily in cool-season grasses.  It develops with or without snow cover, but its activity is most severe when snow falls on unfrozen ground. To identify this fungus, look for circular patches from 2-12 inches in diameter that are white or light tan in color. A pink hue is present on the outer edge of patches when the disease is actively developing. Grass patches are usually collapsed and matted down upon themselves as well.
