At least 24 species of cucurbits from 13 genera are known to be susceptible to gummy stem blight, caused by three species of Stagonosporopsis. Cankers that are formed on crowns and stems play an important role in the disease cycle and the survival of the pathogen. Fourteen cucurbit species of unknown susceptibility representing 12 genera, four taxonomic tribes, and four geographic origins were inoculated with Stagonosporopsis citrulli in Charleston, SC, in spring 2015, spring 2016, and fall… 
The First recording of Gummy Stem Blight Disease Caused by Didymella bryoniae(Stagonosporopsis cucurbitacearum ) on Watermelon Crop in Iraq
The strongly virulent isolate (I11) was determined after proving its high efficacy in re-infection and giving the same symptoms and was diagnosed in the beginning depending on the morphological characteristics, and was recorded as the causative agent of gummy stem blight disease on the watermelon crop in Iraq.
Stagonosporopsis pogostemonis: A Novel Ascomycete Fungus Causing Leaf Spot and Stem Blight on Pogostemon cablin (Lamiaceae) in South China
The causal organism was identified as Stagonosporopsis pogostemonis, a novel fungal species, causing leaf spots and stem blight disease on Pogostemon cablin, the first report of leaf spot diseases on P. cablin caused by Stagonsporopsis species worldwide.
