The typification of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides

By Paul F. Cannon, Alan G. Buddie and Paul D. Bridge


The anamorphic species Colletotrichum gloeosporioides has never been adequately typified according to modern nomenclatural practice, resulting in uncertainty as to application of the named A lectotype specimen is therefore designated to preserve current usage, with an epitype also chosen as eligible lectotype material is not preserved in a living state. The epitype strain is described and characterized using morphological and molecular methods. There are three distinct rDNA ITS sequences of the epitype strain in GENBANK, so it has been re-sequenced to confirm the true base-pair structure
