A survey for cercosporoid fungi was conducted in residential gardens in Bay, Laguna, Philippines. One of the specimens was a bougainvillea with leaf spots on both young and mature leaves. The specimens were collected and studied in the laboratory for further identification of the causal pathogen. It was found out that leaf spots were caused by Passalora bougainvilleae. Leaf spot of bougainvillea caused by P. bougainvilleae is reported for the first time in the Philippines.
