To improve phylogenetic resolution of the Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complex we developed and tested the performance of a new set of primers for the Apn2/MAT locus with a case study of 22 isolates. These were isolated mainly from coffee plants and represent six divergent and well characterized species within the C. gloeosporioides complex. Following previous studies on this locus, we have generated sequence data from an expanded region (> 4600 bp), revealing increased phylogenetic… 

The impact of phenotypic and molecular data on the inference of Colletotrichum diversity associated with Musa

The impact of methodological choices in a morphological and molecular evaluation of Colletotrichum species associated with banana in Brazil and one lineage did not cluster with any previously described species is described here as C. chrysophilum.

The ApMat marker can resolve Colletotrichum species: a case study with Mangifera indica

There is a need to develop a consensus among mycologists as to which genes should be used to define and delimit a Colletotrichum species and in the mean time myCologists should voluntarily restrain from describing new species based on inadequate datasets.

Species from the Colletotrichum acutatum, Colletotrichum boninense and Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complexes associated with tree tomato and mango crops in Colombia

A robust strain identification that allowed phylogenetic species recognition (PSR) based on the identification of well-supported monophyletic clades and concordance between individual and multilocus phylogenies was permitted.

ITS1, 5.8S and ITS2 secondary structure modelling for intra-specific differentiation among species of the Colletotrichum gloeosporioides sensu lato species complex

There were also taxonomic motifs and base changes that were unique to specific taxa and which may be used to support intra-specific identification of members of the C. gloeosporioides sensu lato species complex.

Comparative analysis of the mitochondrial genomes of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides sensu lato: insights into the evolution of a fungal species complex interacting with diverse plants

Comparative phylogenetic analysis indicated that lineage-specific rapid divergence of GS and SOD2 markers confounded concatenation-based species relationship inference and shed light on the evolution of C. gloeosporioides s.l. and demonstrates that mitogenome sequence can complement prevailing nuclear markers in improving species delimitation accuracy.

Epidemiology, pathology and identification of Colletotrichum including a novel species associated with avocado (Persea americana) anthracnose in Israel

The pathogen survived and over-wintered mainly on fresh and dry leaves, as well as fresh twigs in the orchard, to determine their survival on different host-structures in Israel.

Combined Metabarcoding and Multi-locus approach for Genetic characterization of Colletotrichum species associated with common walnut (Juglans regia) anthracnose in France

The genetic and pathogenic heterogeneity of Colletotrichum species associated with walnut anthracnose in France is highlighted providing useful information for targeted treatments or selection of resistant cultivars, in order to better control the disease.

Multilocus phylogenetic analyses suggest the presence of Colletotrichum chrysophilum causing banana anthracnose in Mexico

This finding represents the first report of C. chrysophilum causing anthracnose of banana in Mexico; therefore, it should be considered an integrated management program to reduce losses caused by this disease.

Optimal markers for the identification of Colletotrichum species

The barcode gap distance and intra/inter-specific distance overlap are calculated and each of the most commonly applied molecular markers are evaluated for their utility as a barcode for species identification to reconstruct the phylogeny of each species complex using a minimal set of phylogenetic markers with the strongest phylogenetic signal.



Colletotrichum gloeosporioides s.l. associated with Theobroma cacao and other plants in Panamá: multilocus phylogenies distinguish host-associated pathogens from asymptomatic endophytes

Two new species are formally described, C. tropicale and C. ignotum, that are frequent asymptomatic associates of cacao and other Neotropical plant species, and epitypify C. theobromicola, which is associated with foliar and fruit anthracnose lesions of cacoe and other plant hosts.

Molecular and Phenotypic Analyses Reveal Association of Diverse Colletotrichum acutatum Groups and a Low Level of C. gloeosporioides with Olive Anthracnose

ABSTRACT Anthracnose (Colletotrichum spp.) is an important disease causing major yield losses and poor oil quality in olives. The objectives were to determine the diversity and distribution pattern

Using mating-type gene sequences for improved phylogenetic resolution of Collectotrichum species complexes.

Morphological traits, including hyphopodia size, colony appearance, spore size, appresorial shape and size and host preference, frequently were unreliable as indicators of phylogenetic association and more often were useful for this purpose.

Unraveling evolutionary relationships among the divergent lineages of colletotrichum causing anthracnose disease in turfgrass and corn.

A combination of hierarchal- and nonhierarchal-based analyses were employed to examine evolutionary relationships among the grass-infecting Colletotrichum species, with special emphasis on isolates from turf and other grasses in the subfamily Pooideae.

Analysis of the MAT1-2-1 gene of Colletotrichum lindemuthianum

The results suggest that although the MAT1-2-1 genes are highly conserved among ascomycetes, the mechanism which defines mating partners in the genus Colletotrichum is distinct to the idiomorph system described for other members of this phylum.

Two divergent intragenomic rDNA ITS2 types within a monophyletic lineage of the fungus Fusarium are nonorthologous.

The results suggest that the ancestral ITS2 types may have arisen following an ancient interspecific hybridization or gene duplication which occurred prior to the evolutionary radiation of the Gibberella fujikuroi complex and related species of Fusarium.

Molecular characterization of slow-growing orange and key lime anthracnose strains of Colletotrichum from citrus as C. acutatum.

Cluster analysis of rDNA and mitochondrial DNA restriction fragments divided the SGO and KLA isolates into two recognizable groups with genetic similarity of 87%.

Identification of Colletotrichum species associated with anthracnose disease of coffee in Vietnam

The majority of Vietnamese isolates belonged to C. gloeosporioides and they grouped together with the coffee berry disease (CBD) fungus, C. boninense, but could be distinguished from the Vietnamese C. kahawae.

Pathogenic Variation in Colletotrichum gloeosporioides Infecting Stylosanthes spp. in a Center of Diversity in Brazil.

Pathogenic diversity was extensive at three sites where selected germ plasm were under evaluation, and complex race clusters and unclassified isolates representing new races were more prevalent at these sites compared with sites containing wild Stylosanthes populations.
