We investigated the identity and genetic diversity of more than 100 isolates belonging to Phyllosticta (teleomorph Guignardia), with particular emphasis on Phyllosticta citricarpa and Guignardia mangiferae s.l. occurring on Citrus. Phyllosticta citricarpa is the causal agent of Citrus Black Spot and is subject to phytosanitary legislation in the EU. This species is frequently confused with a taxon generally referred to as G. mangiferae, the presumed teleomorph of P. capitalensis, which is a non…

Phyllosticta spp. on cultivated Citrus in Australia

DNA sequence analysis of specimens held in plant pathology herbaria and culture collections investigated the occurrence of pathogenic and endophytic species of Phyllosticta on cultivated Citrus in Australia and resolved all the sequences of Australian accessions into two major clades.

A phylogenetic re-evaluation of Phyllosticta (Botryosphaeriales)

This study redefines Phyllosticta, and shows that it clusters sister to the Botryosphaeriaceae, for which the older family name Phylostictaceae is resurrected.

Phyllosticta species associated with citrus diseases in China

Morphological, cultural and biochemical characters were consistent with the results of phylogenetic analysis, and the newly resolved taxon, Phyllosticta citrichinaensis was isolated from leaves and fruits of all four Citrus species and is introduced in this paper.

Phyllosticta citricarpa and sister species of global importance to Citrus

This pathogen profile represents a comprehensive literature review of this pathogen and allied taxa associated with citrus, focusing on identification, distribution, genomics, epidemiology and disease management, and considers the knowledge emerging from seven genomes of Phyllosticta spp.

Phyllosticta capitalensis and P. paracapitalensis are endophytic fungi that show potential to inhibit pathogenic P. citricarpa on citrus

The results indicate these endophytes may have potential antagonistic effects against P. citricarpa under field conditions, and provide evidence through Koch’s postulates that the two endophytic species are non-pathogenic on citrus fruit.

Enemy or ally: a genomic approach to elucidate the lifestyle of Phyllosticta citrichinaensis

The first genomic comparison of multiple citrus-colonizing pathogens and endophytes of the genus Phyllosticta is presented, and therefore provides the basis for further comparative studies into the lifestyle adaptations within this genus.

Genomic sequencing of Phyllosticta citriasiana provide insight into its conservation and diversification with closely related Phyllosticta species associated with citrus

Insight is revealed into the genetic mechanisms of host adaptation of Phyllosticta species associated with citrus and the way to identify effectors that function in infection of citrus plants is paved.

Typification and phylogenetic study of Phyllosticta ampelicida and P. vaccinii

The results did not support an anamorph/teleomorph connection between P. vaccinii and G. parthenocissi in that they represent different species, and Morphological characteristics of these cultures are described and compared with type specimens and the original descriptions.

Polyphasic identification and MAT1-2 isolates of Phyllosticta citricarpa in Cuba

Citrus black spot (CBS), caused by Phyllosticta citricarpa (McAlpine) van der Aa, is a disease that affects Citrus spp. causing production losses, high costs associated with management, and



Nonpathogenic Isolates of the Citrus Black Spot Fungus, Guignardia citricarpa, Identified as a Cosmopolitan Endophyte of Woody Plants, G. mangiferae (Phyllosticta capitalensis).

ABSTRACT The population structure of Guignardia citricarpa sensu lato (anamorph: Phyllosticta citricarpa), a fungus of which strains pathogenic to citrus are subject to phytosanitary legislation in

High molecular diversity of the fungus Guignardia citricarpa and Guignardia mangiferae and new primers for the diagnosis of the citrus black spot

RAPD markers were used to investigate the distribution of genetic variability among a group of Guignardia citricarpa isolates obtained from several hosts, showing a clear discrimination among the pathogenic isolates of G. citicarpa and endophytic isolates.

Extensive host range of an endophytic fungus, Guignardia endophyllicola (anamorph: Phyllosticta capitalensis)

This endophytic fungus has been revealed to live within various vascular plants, angiosperms, gymnosperms and pteridophytes as well as in different places in Japan and Thailand.

Identity of Guignardia sp. inhabiting ericaceous plants

An ascomycete belonging to the genus Guignardia with a Phyllosticta anamorph was frequently isolated from living leaves of several ericaceous plants. Ecological study on assemblages of endophytes

Genetic variability in the endophytic fungus Guignardia citricarpa isolated from citrus plants

Most of the isolates produces mature asci, supporting the hypothesis that they are nonpathogenic endophytes, which recently were identified as G. mangiferae.

Multiple gene genealogies and phenotypic characters differentiate several novel species of Mycosphaerella and related anamorphs on banana

Three species of Mycosphaerella, namely M. eumusae, M. fijiensis, and M. musicola are involved in the Sigatoka disease complex of bananas. Besides these three primary pathogens, several additional

Highlights of the Didymellaceae: A polyphasic approach to characterise Phoma and related pleosporalean genera

The phylogenetic analysis revealed that the current Boeremaean subdivision is incorrect from an evolutionary point of view, revealing the genus Phoma to be highly polyphyletic.

Characterization of diversity in Colletotrichum acutatum sensu lato by sequence analysis of two gene introns, mtDNA and intron RFLPs, and mating compatibility

Mating compatibility was identified within one clade, C, and between two phylogenetically distinct clades, C and J4, suggesting that genetic isolation occurred before reproductive isolation.

Phylogeny and systematics of the genus Calonectria

The identity of a large collection of Calonectria isolates from various geographic regions was determined using morphological and DNA sequence comparisons, which resulted in the discovery of seven new species; Ca.

It is concluded that the strictly plant pathogenic, nectrotrophic families evolved from saprobic ancestors (Capnodiaceae), which is the more primitive state.
