Catenulocercospora fusimaculans (G.F. Atk.) C. Nakash., Videira & Crous 2017 - (ladder leaf spot of sorghum)
This fungus causes elongated leaf lesions on sorghum and grasses which can be arranged in a ladder-like pattern. It has been mainly reported from parts of the Americas, Asia and Africa. Taxonomic studies have shown that it is related to the genus Ramulispora, based on its DNA structure. However, it has a different morphology and has been placed in a separate genus (Videira et al., 2017).
