Colletotrichum fructicola Prihastuti, L. Cai & K.D. Hyde 2009
This fungus is widely distributed and infects many crops causing diseases like anthracnose, bitter rot (e.g. on apple) or leaf spot diseases. It has been originally described from coffee berries in Thailand (Prihastuti et al., 2009), but has been more frequently reported from fruit trees (apple, mango, citrus) or as a common and virulent pathogen of strawberries (e.g. Gan et al., 2017).
C. fructicola is part of the Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complex. Conidia are one-celled, smooth-walled, hyaline, cylindrical with obtuse to slightly rounded ends and about 10-15 x 5-6 µm in size. They can spread with rain splashes.
