A destructive new disease of Syzygium samarangense in Thailand caused by the new species Pestalotiopsis samarangensis

Abstract: A new fungal species, Pestalotiopsis samarangensis, was isolated from fruit rot in Syzygium samarangense from markets in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai provinces, Thailand. Initially small, circular, black, slightly sunken spots developed on fruits. Later, the spots enlarged rapidly, became sunken, and resulted in a soft decay of the fruit flesh. Molecular analysis of the ITS, β-tubulin, and tef1 combined gene sequences distinguish P. samarangensis from other species in the genus. Pathogenicity testing proved that … Show more

“…Their conidial shape and the colour of median cell were also very similar (Maharachchikumbura et al , 2013b. The conidia of P. coffeae-arabicae are smaller than those of P. chrysea, P. umberspora and P. asiatica (Maharachchikumbura et al , 2013b. The apical appendages of P. coffeae-arabicae are shorter than these three related species.…”

“…1), P. coffeae-arabicae displayed a closer relationship with P. chrysea, P. umberspora and P. asiatica. Their conidial shape and the colour of median cell were also very similar (Maharachchikumbura et al , 2013b. The conidia of P. coffeae-arabicae are smaller than those of P. chrysea, P. umberspora and P. asiatica (Maharachchikumbura et al , 2013b.…”

“…Detailed phylogenetic trees for each group may be found in Walther et al (2013) phylogenetic understanding of the taxonomy associated with Pestalotiopsis and allied genera was based mainly on conidial characters (Steyaert 1949;Guba 1961;Nag Rag 1993), conidiogenesis (Sutton 1980) and sexual state association (Barr 1975). More recently, some new species have been introduced based on host occurrence, plus morphological and molecular data (Maharachchikumbura et al 2012(Maharachchikumbura et al , 2013aStrobel et al 2000). Furthermore, currently only 36 Pestalotiopsis species have either ex-type or ex-epitype sequences.…”

“…Members of Sporocadaceae are saprobes, endophytes or foliar pathogens in tropical and temperate regions (Jeewon et al 2004;Tanaka et al 2011). Pestalotiopsis can be found as saprobes or pathogens worldwide (Jeewon et al 2002(Jeewon et al , 2003Maharachchikumbura et al 2011Maharachchikumbura et al , 2012Maharachchikumbura et al , 2013Maharachchikumbura et al , 2014aMaharachchikumbura et al , b, 2016a. Recently, Chen et al (2017) provided updates for this genus based on morphology and phylogeny.…”
