First report of Colletotrichum fioriniae and C. nymphaeae causing anthracnose on cherry tomatoes in South Carolina
Plant Disease 103 (5), 1042-1042
Abstract: During 2018, cherry tomato fruits (Solanum lycopersicum var. cerasiforme) grown in South Carolina, U.S. were observed with symptoms of anthracnose fruit rot, with sunken necrotic lesions containing orange mucilaginous spore masses. Two fungi, Colletotrichum fioriniae and C. nymphaeae were isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and DNA sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
