Fragaria vesca and Fragaria moschata are best known as generic popular name of wilde strawberries, although there are obvious anatomical differences between the two species. Starting from the existence of both species in populations quite well fixed in the area of the Anina mountains and the Cheile Nerei area, we made observations on the pathogens presents in those populations in the period between 2018-2021. Thus, we learn that one of the most common pathogens in the area mentioned before was Septoria fragariae. Taking in consideration that this pathogenic fungus is also one of the most damaging pathogens in strawberry plantations, we conducted a study of its incidence in the populations of the two species of wild strawberries. For this evaluation, during the whole time interval, the attack parameters of the pathogen Septoria fragariae were measured, the data being presented compared to the two species, Fragaria vesca and Fragaria moschata in four locations where both species were found. We did this in order not to have differences in climatic conditions and thus to avoid possible differences in the manifestation of the pathogen. As a general assessment, the results indicate some differences in the years more favorable to the manifestation of the pathogen both between species and between the populations of the two species of Fragaria sp.
