Colletotrichum fioriniae (Marcelino & Gouli) Pennycook 2017

The fungus infects various crops causing leaf spots and fruit rot, e.g. on apple and avocado. It is morphologically similar to Colletotrichum acutatum. The aerial mycelia are gray and become pinkish-gray with age. The conidia are orange, narrowly elliptical, 9–15 x 3.0–4.5 μm, smooth, hyaline and pointed at both ends.
