Teratosphaeria epicoccoides (Cooke & Massee) Rossman & W.C. Allen 2015

This fungus is widely distributed and causes leaf blight on eucalypt trees. It has been reported from Australia, Asia, Africa and the Americas. The initial symptoms are small angular leaf spots on the upper leaf surfaces. These expand and coalesce, eventually covering the entire leaf surface. On the lower leaf surface brown to black spores develop.
