Citrus melanose* is characterized by the presence of small, pustular lesions that look like drops of caramelized sugar on leaves, twigs, and fruits. These lesions are initiated while the parts are still young, and at maturity they may occur as isolated dots or may be arranged in streaks, rings, or extensive irregular patches. The fungus that causes melanose possesses two stages, a pycnidial one, Phomopsis citri {2)y^ described in 1912, and an ascigerous one, Diaporthe citri {10)j described in… Expand

Citrus Melanose (Diaporthe citri Wolf): A Review
Citrus Melanose occurs in many citrus growing regions of the world and infects many citrus species. It affects young leaves and fruits of certain citrus species or varieties when the tissues grow andExpand
Morphology Characterization, Molecular Phylogeny, and Pathogenicity of Diaporthe passifloricola on Citrus reticulata cv. Nanfengmiju in Jiangxi Province, China
TLDR
Results indicate that D. passifloricola may persist as a symptom-less endophyte in the peel of citrus fruit, yet it may cause stem-end if it invades the stem end during fruit storage. Expand
Phylogenetic Analysis and Development of Molecular Tool for Detection of Diaporthe citri Causing Melanose Disease of Citrus
TLDR
A molecular tool based on the novel species-specific primer pair TUBDcitri-F1/TUBD-R1, which was designed from TUB gene, was developed to detect D. citri efficiently and could be unequivocally identified from closely related Diaporthe species by using this simple PCR approach. Expand

TLDR
The species causing melanose and stem end rot diseases of Citrus spp. Expand
