Ramularia Unger 1833

The genus contains more than 300 fungal species. Many are plant pathogens which cause leafspot diseases on various crops. The conidiophores usually emerge as bundles from the leaf surface to form cylindrical conidia with one or more septae and with distinct attachment scars. The genus has been originally defined as fungi with hyaline conidiophores and conidia with dark conidial hila. However, a reliable identification requires a DNA analysis. Sexual forms have been described under the genus Mycosphaerella.
