First report of Phoma multirostrata in Australia

Golzar, H. and Lanoiselet, V. and Wang, C. and Tan, Y. P. and Shivas, R. G. ORCID: (2015) First report of Phoma multirostrata in Australia. Australasian Plant Disease Notes, 10 (1). pp. 8-9.


Dark grey leaf lesions were observed on coriander (Coriandrum sativum) commercially grown at Wanneroo, Western Australia during November 2013. A species of Phoma was consistently isolated from leaf lesions. The pathogen was identified as Phoma multirostrata using morphological characteristics, DNA sequencing comparisons and pathogenicity testing. This is the first report of Phoma multirostrata causing leaf spot on coriander in Australia.
