Novel species of Cercospora and Pseudocercospora (Capnodiales, Mycosphaerellaceae) from Australia

Shivas, Roger Graham and Marney, Thomas Stephen and Tan, Yu Pei and McTaggart, Alistair Ross (2015) Novel species of Cercospora and Pseudocercospora (Capnodiales, Mycosphaerellaceae) from Australia. Fungal Biology, 119 (5). pp. 362-369. ISSN 1878-6146

Abstract

Novel species of Cercospora and Pseudocercospora are described from Australian native plant species. These taxa are Cercospora ischaemi sp. nov. on Ischaemum australe (. Poaceae); Pseudocercospora airliensis sp. nov. on Polyalthia nitidissima (. Annonaceae); Pseudocercospora proiphydis sp. nov. on Proiphys amboinensis (. Amaryllidaceae); and Pseudocercospora jagerae sp. nov. on Jagera pseudorhus var. pseudorhus (. Sapindaceae). These species were characterised by morphology and an analysis of partial nucleotide sequence data for the three gene loci, ITS, LSU and EF-1α. Recent divergence of closely related Australian species of Pseudocercospora on native plants is proposed.
