Abstract

Ramichloridium strelitziae associated with sooty blotch and flyspeck on Ravenala madagascariensis in China.

Abstract

The first report of Ramichloridium strelitziae from China is documented. In a survey of host plants for SBFS fungi, we isolated the fungus from colonies on stems of Ravenala madagascariensis collected from Haikou, Hainan, China. It is distinguished from the other species in the genus by morphological characters and phylogenetic analysis based on ITS sequences.
