The Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complex
The limit of the Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complex is defined genetically, based on a strongly supported clade within the Col letteredum ITS gene tree, as well as all taxa accepted within this clade, as it has been applied in the literature for the past 50 years. Expand
The Colletotrichum acutatum species complex
Multilocus molecular phylogenetic analysis of 331 strains previously identified as C. acutatum and other related taxa, including strains from numerous hosts with wide geographic distributions, confirmed the molecular groups previously recognised and identified a series of novel taxa. Expand
Colletotrichum – current status and future directions
A review is provided of the current state of understanding of Colletotrichum systematics, focusing on species-level data and the major clades. The taxonomic placement of the genus is discussed, andExpand
Colletotrichum species with curved conidia from herbaceous hosts
A multilocus molecular phylogenetic analysis of 97 isolates of C. Dematium and other Colletotrichum species with curved conidia from herbaceous hosts resulted in 20 clades, with 12 clades containing strains that had previously been identified as C. dematium. Expand
Lifestyle transitions in plant pathogenic Colletotrichum fungi deciphered by genome and transcriptome analyses
Findings show that preinvasion perception of plant-derived signals substantially reprograms fungal gene expression and indicate previously unknown functions for particular fungal cell types. Expand
The Colletotrichum boninense species complex
Seven of the new species are only known from New Zealand, perhaps reflecting a sampling bias, and the new combination C. phyllanthi was made, and C. dracaenae Petch was epitypified and the name replaced with C. petchii. Expand
Botryosphaeriaceae as potential pathogens of prunus species in South Africa, with descriptions of Diplodia africana and Lasiodiplodia plurivora sp. nov.
Eight species of Botryosphaeriaceae isolated from symptomatic wood of Prunus species (plum, peach, nectarine and apricot) was determined in stone fruit-growing areas in South Africa, and all species were associated with wood necrosis. Expand
Fungal trunk pathogens associated with wood decay of almond trees on Mallorca (Spain)
Five species of Botryosphaeriaceae, including Neofusicoccum parvum was the dominant species, followed by E. lata, D. olivarum and N. australe, and two species are newly described, namely Collophora hispanica sp. Expand
Coniochaeta (Lecythophora), Collophora gen. nov. and Phaeomoniella species associated with wood necroses of Prunus trees
In a preliminary inoculation study, pathogenicity was confirmed for some of the new species on apricot, peach or plum wood and the new genus Collophora is proposed, comprising five species that frequently occur in necrotic peach and nectarine wood. Expand
Unravelling Colletotrichum species associated with Camellia: employing ApMat and GS loci to resolve species in the C. gloeosporioides complex
C. camelliae proved to be the most dominant and probably host specific taxon occurring on Camellia and the combined use of the loci ApMat and GS in a phylogenetic analysis is able to resolve all currently accepted species in the C. gloeosporioides species complex. Expand
