Partridge, E. Christopher & Gareth Morgan-Jones. Notes on Hyphomycetes. XC. Fusicladosporium, a new genus for Cladosporium-like anamorphs of Venturia, and the pecan scab-inducing fungus. Mycotaxon 85: 357 - 370. 2003.

ABSTRACT: A new genus, Fusicladosporium, is named to accommodate Cladosporium caryigenum, the causal organism of pecan scab, and the Cladosporium mitosporic states of Venturia carpophila [C. carpophilum] and Venturia acerina [C. humile]. Comments are made on the morphological disparities between these entities and Cladosporium sensu stricto species, as well as on differences in the respective physiology and resultant habits of the two groups, particularly with regard to plant pathogenicity. Some deliberation on the significance of teleomorph/anamorph connections is offered, including opinions on the current state of the taxonomy of some anamorphs associated with the genera Mycosphaerella and Venturia. The matter of generic concepts and circumscription within the Cladosporium complex is further revisited.

KEYWORDS: Fusicladium, Karakulinia, maple scab, peach scab, generic concepts
