Phoulivong, Sittisack, Lei Cai, Noireung Parinn, Hang Chen, Kamel A. Abd-elsalam, Ekachai Chukeatirote & Kevin D. Hyde. A new species of Colletotrichum from Cordyline fruticosa and Eugenia javanica causing anthracnose disease. Mycotaxon 114: 247–257. 2010.
ABSTRACT: A new species C. cordylinicola, isolated
from Cordyline fruticosa, is characterized by morphological and
molecular characters. The species would previously have been considered as a
member of the Colletotrichum gloeosporioides complex. Combined six gene
analysis using ACT, GS, TUB2, ITS, CAL and GPDH shows that three strains of C.
cordylinicola clustered in a distinct lineage as a sister clade to C.
kahawae. Other reference taxa employed in the analysis include type strains
