Colletotrichum boninense Moriwaki, Toy. Sato & Tsukib. 2003
This fungus is widely distributed in tropical and subtropical regions. It can infect a large variety of plants, including crops like passionfruit, coffee and vegetables. Infections typically cause anthracnose symptoms on leaves and fruits.
C. boninense has been described as a complex of more than 10 closely related species, including for example C. karstii which has similar conidia but shorter and narrower asci. In addition, the ascospores of C. boninense s.s. are more uniform with rounded ends, becoming brown and septate with age (Damm et al. 2012).
