Confirmation of Paracercospora egenula causing leaf spot of eggplant in Hawaii

Vaghefi, Niloofar and Pethybridge, Sarah J. and Shivas, Roger G. and Nelson, Scot C. (2016) Confirmation of Paracercospora egenula causing leaf spot of eggplant in Hawaii. Australasian Plant Disease Notes, 11 (1). pp. 35-37.


Morphological and molecular studies confirmed Paracercospora egenula as the primary cercosporoid fungus causing leaf spot of eggplant (Solanum melongena) in Hawaii. This is the first confirmed record of P. egenula in Hawaii, although it was previously reported as C. solani-melongenae, based on an interception at Oahu, Hawaii, in 1946. Another cercosporoid species, Cercospora melongenae, reported to cause leaf spot on eggplant in Hawaii, was not detected.
