Colletotrichum SIG meeting at IMC10

Dear Colletotrichum community, Some of us use molecular data to untangle the systematics of the economically important genus Colletotrichum and combine this with morphological features and host preferences, while others study infection strategies and look for explanations for pathogenicity by studying genomes and gene expression or screen control measures to reduce yield loss.

Fig. 2 from the paper, types of species within the complexThe major publication of my postdoc is now out — all 65 pages of it — in Studies in Mycology. In this publication we review the taxonomy of the fungus commonly known as Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, and reveal that is a complex (or species aggregate) of 22 different species. We also recognise one subspecies, and informally recognise another “species” at the f. sp. level (pending further research).
