First Report of Soybean Rust Caused by Phakopsora pachyrhizi in the Continental United States.
The field diagnosis of P. pachyrhizi was confirmed officially by the USDA/APHIS on November 10, 2004, and this was followed on November 11, 2004 by a wide-ranging survey of soybean and kudzu in soybean production areas in southern and central Louisiana, and six soybean specimens from five sites were confirmed positive.
Species of colletotrichum on agavaceae.
One new species, Colletotrichum dracaenophilum, is described as a new species for isolates having long conidia and occurring on Dracaena sanderiana from China, and three new combinations are included, Colletscotrichum phormii, Glomerella phorm ii, and Phaeosphaeriopsis phacidiomorpha.
Molecular phylogeny of Leptosphaeria and Phaeosphaeria
It is concluded that peridial wall morphology, anamorph characteristics, and to a lesser extent host, are phylogenetically significant at the generic level.
Plectosporium, a new genus for Fusarium, tabacinum, the anamorph of Plectosphaerella cucumerina
Plectosporium is described as a new genus for Fusarium tabacinum, the anamorph of Plectosphaerella cucumerina, characterized by moist colonies.
Phylogeny and taxonomic revision of the Planistromellaceae including its coelomycetous anamorphs: contributions towards a monograph of the genus Kellermania
Species representing the core genera of the Planistromellaceae formed a clade and evaluation of its topology revealed that previous morphology-based definitions of genera resulted in an artificial classification system.
Fungal pathogens of Proteaceae
Novel genera and species elucidated in this study include Gordonomyces mucovaginatus and Pseudopassalora gouriqua (hyphomycetes), and Xenoconiothyrium catenata (coelomycete), all on Protea spp.
Cultivation and diseases of Proteaceae: Leucadendron, Leucospermum and Protea
In this publication the fungi that cause leaf, stem and root diseases on Leucadendron, Leucospermum and Protea are treated and data pertaining to the taxonomy, identification, host range, distribution, pathogenicity, molecular characteristics and control of these pathogens are provided.
Taxonomy and morphology of the synanamorphs Pilidium concavum and Hainesia lythri (Coelomycetes)
Single conidial isolates from the hemispheric, non-ostiolate conidiomata of Pilidium concavum consistently yielded the cupulate to discoid, stalked conidiomata of Hainesia lythri. Cultural characters
