Ayala-Escobar, Victoria, Maria de Jesus Yanez-Morales, Uwe Braun, Johannes Z. Groenewald & Pedro W. Crous. Cercospora agavicola — a new foliar pathogen of Agave tequilana var. azul from Mexico. Mycotaxon 93: 115-121. 2005.

ABSTRACT: Cercospora agavicola is newly described and illustrated on Agave tequilana var. azul from Mexico. Koch's postulates were successfully completed, confirming C. agavicola as the causal organism of Agave leaf spot and necrosis. C. agavicola is compared to cercosporoid species based on sequence data derived from the ITS nrDNA region, and part of the elongation factor 1-a, actin, calmodulin and histone H3 genes. Its taxonomic position, generic affinity and relatedness to allied species are discussed on the basis of morphological and molecular data.

KEYWORDS: mitosporic fungi, Mycosphaerella anamorphs, North America
