Twenty-six strains representing three species of Colletotrichum were isolated from leaf and fruit lesions of vitaceous plants in Guizhou and Yunnan provinces, China. The strains were characterized by morphology and phylogenetic analyses of actin, β-tubulin, calmodulin, glutamine synthetase, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and rDNA internal transcribed spacer gene sequences. The combined dataset showed that 20 of 26 strains represented a novel species, the rest being Colletotrichum fructicola (four strains) and Colletotrichum gloeosporioides (two strains). The new species is described herein as Colletotrichum viniferum. Its conidia, compared with similar Colletotrichum species are cylindrical and 12e 16 mm long. Based on pathogenicity tests, C. viniferum caused leaf spots and anthracnose of table grape but was not host-specific. © 2012 The Mycological Society of Japan. Published by Elsevier B.V.

Agaricus is a genus of saprobic basidiomycetes with more than 400 species recognized worldwide, with about 50 species known in China. Our objective was to investigate three new species of section Arvenses in highland subtropical Southwest China. Agaricus guizhouensis is a new species characterized by a white pileus with yellowish squamules, small ellipsoid spores and cheilocystidia with yellowish-brown pigments; another new species, Agaricus longistipes is recognized by its slender stipe, and its elongate-ellipsoid basidiospores; the third new one, Agaricus megalocarpus is remarkable by its large size and its pileus surface covered with fine brown squamules. It is firstly reported for Guizhou Province that Agaricus abruptibulbus, Agaricus flocculosipes, and Agaricus subrufescens are illustrated. Two probable new species require further studying. A phylogenetic analyses of rDNA-ITS sequence data belonging to section Arvenses showed that the section Arvenses is monophyletic and can be subdivided in five branches, the branch of A. subrufescens and four clades (A-D). The eight species from highland subtropical Southwest China were distributed in all five branches, indicating that this highland is at the climatic crossroads. The white pileus trait and the potential interest are discussed. These data suggest a potential species richness that remains to be discovered. © 2014 The British Mycological Society. Source

Thirty-eight strains of Colletotrichum were isolated from diseased Citrus leaves in Guizhou and Yunnan provinces in China. Based on morphological characters and multilocus sequence data, the strains were identified as C. boninense (1 strain), C. brevispora (1), C. fructicola (2), C. gloeosporioides (29), C. karstii (2), C. simmondsii (1) and Colletotrichum murrayae; the latter represents a new species which is described in this paper. Colletotrichum gloeosporioides was originally isolated from Citrus sinensis in southern Italy and was the most common species associated with diseased leaves of Citrus in China. © 2012 Adac.

Shiraia bambusicola is a medicinal fungus growing on the twigs of bamboo plants, with the higher value in medicinal use. The natural resource of S. bambusicola has rapidly reduced recently because of the large-scale over-collection and the habitat destruction. The resource would be in extinction if there are no any protective measures and availability of sustainable use strategies. In this paper it is summarized that the application and development of S. bambusicola. A comprehensive analysis on the progress of research as well as the current problems in application and the future outlook are also proposed in the paper. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Colletotrichum kahawae, a very aggressive pathogen causing coffee berry disease (CBD), is specific to Arabica coffee (Coffea arabica) in Africa. This species is a significant quarantine pathogen in many countries which are still free from CBD. C. kahawae is morphologically similar to C. gloeosporioides but is phylogenetically and phenotypically distinct. Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is a simple, cost-effective, and rapid method for specific DNA-based detection. In this paper, the Apn2/ MAT locus was selected as candidate marker, on whose basis species-specific primers were designed for loopmediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) diagnosis of C. kahawae. The accuracy of this assay was tested using the type strains of other closely related species in the C. gloeosporioides species complex. The sensitivity of LAMP is high, with 8×10-2 pg μl-1 genomic DNA as the lowest detectable concentration. It offers a new and effective way for the rapid, specific and cost-effective diagnosis of severe fungal pathogens, thus representing a favourable option to conventional PCR and real-time PCR assays. LAMP diagnosis of C. kahawae is likely to provide a useful technological option for quarantine and disease management and control to prevent further spreading of this pathogen. Source
