Elsinoe takoropuku sp. nov. is described from Pittosporum tenuifolium Sol. ex Gaertn. (Pittosporaceae). This species causes swelling to develop on the twigs of the host species. The species initially was thought to be a recent introduction to New Zealand but, based on the host association and the geographic range of the fungus in New Zealand, it is considered to be a newly described native species.

The families of bitunicate ascomycetes

In a transitional classification of the Ascomycetes, 109 monophyletic entities (clades) are recognized and the name Lecanidiaceae is proposed to replace Patellariaceae Corda, and Cyanoder–mella to replace Cyanoderma Hohn.

Differentiation of species of Elsinoë associated with scab disease of Proteaceae based on morphology, symptomatology, and ITS sequence phylogeny

Anamorph and teleomorph characteristics of isolates from Leucospermum, Protea and Banksia suggest that there are at least four distinct species involved in scab disease of Proteaceae, and phylogenetic tree inferred from DNA sequence data shows that Elsinoë isolates are representative of the same species.
